Blossom Handbag

Today, I intend on getting the rest of my supplies for my Amy Butler’s Style Stitches Sew Along purse – the Blossom Handbag (shown on the left). It just so happens that I am using the exact fabric that’s in the photo (August Fields Bright Buds in Grey) – not just because it’s the same as the one in the photo, but it just happened to be what carried at the time I ordered. I’m not as happy with my selection for the inside of the bag, however. I picked the “Sunrise Seafoam” and it’s just not quite the same colors as the Bright Buds fabric. To make matters worse, there really wasn’t a solid color that matched the “Sunrise Seafoam” so I picked an ‘Ivory” solid….. it doesn’t match anything (it’s pretty, but doesn’t match). I’m hoping when I go to the store today, I’ll find something that might work. Once I make my final purchases, I’ll post this project up to the sidebar…. I’m anxious to see what this might total up to. What is everyone else planning on making?

    Hi Stacy,
    my copy of the book is on the way…can’t wait to pick a bag to use for the sew along. Although the one in the picture looks pretty cool already 🙂

    Oh! I love that purse! Is it only in her new book, or does she sell patterns for it also?

    Okay, made my decision..since I am hooked on all things ruffled right now, I am making the Miss Maven Ruffled Handbag.
    I’m doing the smaller version and got all my fabrics today. Yay!!
    If I have enough left over I am going to make the Beautiful Balance Checkbook Cover too. I really need a checkbook cover. 🙂

    I tried to make the blossom bag today and found that the magnetic closure on the front seemed to be placed far too low. I had to rip out the front tags and now I am in a quandry of how to cover the satin stitched area where the ties and the handle comes together in the front.
    I also found that the bottom width as 1.25″ too long.
