This weekend, I’ve been working on a purse from me. The pattern is by Marlous Designs, called Maggie’s Bag. My mom picked out this pattern for me to make a purse for her. I wanted to do a test run first in other fabrics, so this one I’ll keep. I used 5″ charms for mine, but the pattern calls for 5.5″ squares. The one I’ll make for my mom, I’ll use 6″ squares so it’ll end up a bit bigger.

The fabrics
Ready to be quilted.
Quilting done, needs a good steam!
Quilted with small, loop de loops.
Close up of the quilting. Shiny cream rayon thread.
All done.
The other side.

Several pockets on the inside... hopefully it'll be easier to find my keys!

    I love this, and have fabric picked to make one. I have also seen the same purse made with tweeds and velvets in rich colours and it makes a lovely winter version.

    I LOVED this purse and the easy instructions from the first time I saw it! I went to my stash of MODA precut squares i had purchased a few years ago…and wow…this was the perfect use for the Folkorique (I think) squares.
    Thank you for posting this project! I will add pictures to my blog later today.
