There's a very lovely brand new purse just about to be released over at Nicole Mallalieu Design.... which I was lucky enough to be able to test run last week.
I chose to make the base version, without the overlay, using this gorgeous fabric that Tinniegirl brought back for me from her US trip last year.
I'd been saving it for a special occassion to make something just for me!
I've never made a purse with a curved frame before, but this wavy fabric suits it perfecttly.
To get an idea of the size, here it is with my *barrel purse.
One of the things that I most enjoyed about making this one was sitting on the couch, stitching the beads and frame into place at the end.
Can you spot my little accidental design feature?
If you're super quick, and pop over to Nikki's blog, you may still make it in time to guess the name of this new purse, and be in the running to win a copy.
* I found money in my barrel purse - $7.80 Woohoo!
