I think I must be going through my circle phase. I'm telling you, everything these days seems to need a circle on it. First there was the Floating Bubbles Quilt. The sister quilt to Floating Bubbles is almost ready for release- and if quilts weren't enough...
Check out this complete circle purse. I'm diggin it. The idea came to me at the thrift store this past weekend. I started obsessing over the pattern elements and shape while I should have been sleeping. I'm guessing most people do that sort of thing.
I decided this first circle purse was going to test my idea. For that reason, there are no pockets inside the 16" beast. I used the more really stiff interfacing from the Wal*Mart. I don't love the Wal*Mart, but my town is very small, and they've kinda got the market cornered. (And who doesn't love a run-on sentence?)
All in all the pattern worked out really well. The faced handles look pretty good. I enjoy it.
Its kinda fun to have a complete circle purse in my collection of bags. It goes well with The Cube. Looks like I need to add a triangle variation to round out my set. :)
