Finished Purse!!!

Another UFO Finished!
I just love the three cowboy's in this picture.
I put a tag I made out of faux leather on this side that reads "Cowboy Butts Make Me Nuts", I saw this on a tee shirt and thought it fit this picture, but it is removable.

The handles, I took three fabric strips and raveled the edges. I then braided them to make a sturdy handle. Antique Button for closure and plenty of pockets inside. I will be listing this on my online shop.

Now back to the machine, it makes me feel so good to finish something.

Bonnie I absolutely love, love, love this purse. You have such a creative mind - I could never have dreamed up the tag or the handle either one. I'm working on that "wedding quilt" today, still! Blessings, marlene

Bonnie! This is adorable!!! I love the cowboy butt tag too! What a great idea to braid the strips for the handles ~ I've just got to try that sometime. I'm wanting to make purses so bad but I just haven't gotten around to it...have a great weekend! xxoo, Dawn

Do you use a certain pattern for your totes ?

I have material I want to use for one, but not sure how to get started. I am not a big sewing person, and this doesn't look to hard.

Wish I had a cowboy lovin' friend 'cause I'd snatch up that tote in a heartbeat for her. That's adorable Bonnie and so clever. I did a tote with the braided handle and really loved it. Have a beautiful day. ~ Lynn
