My First Purse

Believe it or not this is the first purse I've ever made. I guess that's not exactly true I did make my knitting bag but I had a lot of help from a friend so this is the first purse I've made solo. It's Simplicity 5541, I think this was in the PR gift bag from last year because I don't remember buying it. It's a very simple pattern and thank goodness for that because my first attempt was with Butterick 5475 which had about 9 bazillon pieces and was an epic fail.

 Finally finished my skirt

 and sweater, can't wait to wear it. Back view.

I took a vacation day and spent the entire day sewing, pure bliss. I haven't had an entire sewing day in quite awhile, I hope this means there will be a lot more of it this weekend.

I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend.

Lovely handbag and like the coordinating skirt. The knitted top looks great with the skirt.

Nice handbag, I haven't gotten brave enough to try one yet. That is great looking outfit.

Wow, what a great coordinated outfit. Now that's planning! They all look so great together.
