I Made It Myself...

I did a purse frame workshop today at Nicole Mallalieu Designs & here is my finished product- a small linen purse.

Purse

I really love the lining fabric (thanks Leslie!) & can't wait to have a go at making one on my own. These purses would make such great pressies filled with some lip gloss or other treats, all the girls in my family should be aware that they will probably be getting one for Christmas this year, you have been warned!

Purse Lining

The class was so much fun & with only 6 of us there we were spoilt for attention. Nicole is a great teacher (& lots of fun) so if you want to learn about making bags or purses I would definitely recommend heading to one of her classes.

Gorgeous purse. I did a handbag course with Nicole earlier this year and loved it. Her designs are lovely and she is so so patient. Would definitely look at doing more.
You chose such lovely fabrics. Well done!

what a sweet little purse
i would love to take a class, but dont think hubby would understand the cost involved (airfare from u.s., hotel, etc) was it difficult?
