Where Does the Time Go?
I folded the prepared quilted purse exterior into the desired shape with a flap to close it....so just about into thirds. I trimmed the sides of the flap into a trapezoid shape. I sewed up the side seams and boxed the bottom sides.
Then I used the black Kaffe fabric loops to attach the handle on each side.
I used some other Kaffe scraps from my stash to fussy cut some flowers to fuse onto the front flap of the purse. I always use Trans Web fusible for applique as it is very light and does not gum up my needle when I stitch on it.
I stitched and embellished the appliqued flowers with Sulky metallic thread. Then, I also fused on some sparkly crystals to add some BLING!
