Wow, after finishing my Magic Loop socks last night, I decided to finally finish up my blue cabled purse. I just had to sew in a lining and sew on a button!
Of course, Loopy had to check out my latest FO (finished object).
Here's a close-up of the button. I found it at Wal-mart and actually got two of them for less than $2 - what a deal!
Here's a better look at the inner lining:
And a picture of the completed purse:
I think this is an FO that I will actually use!
I lucked out and found this perfect piece of fabric in my fabric stash. The pattern called for a piece of fabric that was 7 1/2 inches by 20 inches. This piece was about 7 1/4 X 21!! I used 1/4" seam allowance instead of 1/2" to compensate and it worked out beautifully.
This was a really fun project!
