My Windsong Jewels Purse

I couldn't decide which photos looked the best so I decided to put both sets of with and without flash in.

I saw some instructions for a purse in a book that seemed really easy to me so I decided to go for it! I've been meaning to create something with my 6 inch Windsong Jewels DYB RR blocks that I received back and I love purses so I took 2 of the blocks and using the zipper foot(because of the beads, buttons and stitching near the seam line) sewed them together at the bottom with some bead trim. Then I sewed a piece of muslin(for lining) with some cotton lace(for handles) to each side. Then folded it in half right sides together sewed the edges, turned it right side out sewed the lining together and stuffed it in! Yeay!!! Now I have a CQ purse!!! It's the perfect size to hold my wallet and cell phone! I'm not much for technical sewing so this was perfect, very easy with basic simple straight line sewing! LOL Oh and I also added green organza ribbon for a closure.
