my new upholstery bag


It's purse week over at a lemon squeezy home. I was thrilled to have an excuse to finally make an upholstery purse.  I've been wanting one for like a year and bought some fabric several months ago. I never made it a priority even though my old purse is falling apart.  So thank you Christie for helping me make this a priority. 




I used the no. 107 Shoulder bag pattern from Sewing With Me. It was my first time buying a pdf pattern and I paid $8. That was a big deal for me, but I really love this fabric and I didn't want to mess it up.  I liked the pattern. I had to make a few adjustments and wish I would have made one more. Still I would recommend this or any of her other cute patterns. 

Did I mention I love this fabric.  I bought it at a warehouse I visit for under $5.  


I added to pockets to the inside. It's the perfect size. Large enough for my wallet, a diaper, wipes and a few other items, but not big enough to lose things in. 

Now that I've posted I'm dying to go use it.
