Garibay Soup: My First Purse

My First Purse

I know I haven't talked about our Christmas yet, and I promise I will get to that. I've just been sewing and sewing and thinking about sewing and I thought I'd share one little project I'm working on.

I'm making a purse. This is my first purse and absolutely sucks for a first - I haven't put the handles on yet, but I had to share. Also - these pictures are taken from my camera phone - so they're not the best quality :) I'm not a purse person. I know that most girls out there buy a ton of purses and have these obsessions, and honestly I've never understood it. HOWEVER! I'm sensing a new obsession for me. I am having so much fun learning about purses and being able to make my own will be SO MUCH FUN! And I personally will like it better than I would any $1,300.00 purse that's out there, because buying something like that is INSANE to me! Searching online and seeing all the beautiful homemade purses out there are so inspiring and make me want to be a purse girl... just a homemade one.

So, I know this isn't the best purse in the world, but it's my first purse - all that I need to do now is make a fun purse organizer for it and make some straps - and I'll wear it proudly because it's the first purse that I've ever made. Hopefully someday and someday soon I'll be able to make ones like the beautiful ones I've been seeing on so many wonderful blogs.

Looks good! But, I must admit, I ♥ buying $1300 purses... :) You are doing a great job!

I really like that fabric, it's coming out great!

I get fake name brand purses and my new one is already falling apart, I am NOT amused! I might just have to start making my own too. :)
