My past purse creations!

So this is my first blog post that includes pictures! I hope if you enjoyed looking at it you'll follow me and leave comments so I can get as many suggestions and thoughts from everyone as possible. I would love your opinions! Thanks so much for looking :)

Here are pictures are some of the purses I have made for people before I created this blog. I apologize some of the pictures aren't very clear or detailed, but I had no idea I would be putting them online when I took them.

These were the first two medium sized quilted purses I made. I thought the black and brown one was neat because you hardly would ever have to change your purse when you changed outfits. It'd match black and brown, best of both worlds! The second one I made was for someone whose favorite color was light green. You can't see it too well in the picture, but I promise it's that color! I don't have pictures of the insides but the purse closes with a magnetic snap, and I added pockets with magnetic snaps too.

This purse was fun to make! I perfected the magnetic snaps with this one and I thought the khaki and green colors looked cute together.

I was SOOO excited about this purse because I added a zipper in it and it worked perfectly!! It also made me think spring, which was much needed because I was making it while I was snowed in!

I loved the colors of this quilted purse. I'm a total fan of blue and brown together!!

My latest creation! This is an example of a medium sized purse made of different colored cotton materials. I kind of altered this one from a pattern I found online. I thought the colors looked super cute together and you could wear it with so much! You can't see it to well in the picture but there is gold accents in the material that match the button on the front. I thought using the antique button would be a fun way to add some decor to the purse, as well as keep it closed :)

I actually took a picture of the inside on this one! There are two pockets that match the exterior that can fit your keys, cell phone, lip gloss, etc.
