Break In

A little break in not on my September goals list - the annual United Way auction donation deadline at work snuck up on me so I made this little patchwork handbag.

Outer fabric is a charm pack, my first time using precuts. I love it! It's a practice version of one I plan to make for my grandma. It's too big for what she wants, but with a few tweaks I think it will be perfect for her!

There's a little vintage lace trim on the pockets and the straps and lining are fabric I got at last year's quilt show - salvaged and washed from an adorable quilt shop ravaged by Hurricane Ike.

Inspired by this bag on true up. I might be tempted to bid on this one myself!
