Going International

I'm a bad blogger. I know and I'm sorry. I will make a better effort to blog at least once a week and my goal is to get to every other day.

Part of it is because there are only so many hours in a day and it's just me trying to make a go of this business. But that's a really bad excuse. There's no reason I can't find a few minutes to talk to you each day.

Here's part of the reason I've been so busy.

 I just love making this bag! Let's take a look at it up close, shall we?

Here's a close-up of the wooden button and button loop. You can also get an idea of the stitches. I think the button coordinates perfectly with the off-white yarn.

Here's a closer look at the handles. Don't they go well with the button & the overall look of the purse?

I just love the lining I selected for this bag. It's bold and fun, but on a light background so the purse contents are easy to find. I saw this fabric during a weekend trip to the fabric store and had to buy it!

This picture shows how I attach the lining.

If you turn the purse inside-out & the lining right-side out, then you can sew it easier. Once the lining is in place, turn the whole thing inside-out & voila! Perfectly placed lining. Isn't this fabric the cat's pajamas? Dreamy. /sigh

Here's one last look at the finished purse.

It's now on it's way to Greece (that's how the title ties in) and I really hope it's new owner loves her as much as I loved making her.

If you would like to commission your own basketweave purse, take a look at my Etsy listing where you can check out the colors & handle options.

Thanks for looking and....

Happy Crafting!
