This is a project I started 3 weeks ago using my leftover squares, stips and bits from different projects. It was a way for me to sew and not have to think about pattern but just letting the creative flow take over. I just had a shoulder replacement done 8 1/2 weeks ago so this was really a great way to get back in to the swing of it. I took a small block surrounded it by small squares and then took my strips to surround that. Now what would it become? Mmm it was a good size for a table runner, or a start of a purse or ? After I had trimmed and squared this piece I let it sit for a few days and simmer in my mind just what I wanted it to become....
I had just finished this small purse pattern that I had started just before my surgery - It was a the right size. Maybe.
But Then Again It was the right size for a Table Runner and if I put a green binding on it it would look great, and it did match some hot pads I had made at a earlier time. A great gift idea. Mmmm. - I really did like the idea of a purse and the fabric was just the right size. So This is what my pieced fabric turned out to be.
I formed it into a purse base using the pattern I had from the scrappy purse I had completed. It was just the right size. Then I created the top of the purse using more of my leftover squares and strips, added longer handles instead of a tab. It became "Dianna's Purse"
