Burlap is back.
I got my inspiration from
When was the last time you saw thread for 59cents? I took a chance using it. By the way, it was a new spool that had never been opened. I thought it might be rotten after having it for so long but it worked out fine.
I ironed interfacing to the backs of all pieces
to give it some body.
I fused lace onto the two pockets so that they'd be easily seen inside the purse. I sewed one pocket on the front and back inside.
This is the part I was reluctant about. I've only set grommets once and it was so long ago, I needed a refresher so I contacted YouTube. I don't know what I'd do without it. As stated before, no fabric stores so I got the grommets from Harbor Freight.
Decided to make a purse charm
Also, I made a slide to go on the bag closing.
Ta Da ! All done.
Overall, This project was more trouble than it was worth. But, it was also a great learning experience.
