I had every intention of cleaning
up the mess of scraps leftover
from making myJuly Schnibble quilt
and then trying out my new Accuquilt Go!
It was made with 2 packs of charm squares from the Moda Verna line. I had a pile of leftover 1" X 5" strips from each of the charm squares
and also a pile of tri-pieced strips cut off from the border tri-rail fence blocks. I just reallllly heart these fabrics, so I just couldn't throw them out.
Sooooo, I got to thinkin'...
If I sewed the tri-strips together
and made 9 patches and sewed the
1" wide strips together, I might be able
to make a scrappy Verna purse!!
I also had some leftover strips of the background polkadot fabric. I came up with the combined piece shown above. I ironed on 2 layers of fusible fleece and quilted them all together with a simple meander and soft pastel variegated thread. I then used it to cut out a lining piece in the same shape. I also had extra 9 patches so I made two lined pockets
I used one of the sets of pieced strips
to make 2 padded handles.
So, taaaaaa daaaaaa! Meet my
Scrappy Verna Purse!
Don't you just LOVE making stuff from
bits and bobs of leftovers that some
folks would have just thrown away??
I used a crazy paisley scrap from my stash to line it!
