Crazyquilt Wedding Purse

I did the finishing on my Wedding Purse yesterday.  I had planned on putting it on a purse frame but it's been so long since I did one on a frame....well, I didn't do it right and had to improvise:
My mom has always said that I was resourceful!  I simply ran some chain through the sleeve on each side and then added a snap for closure.  I'm quite pleased with this and will package it up to ship tomorrow.

So now I'm thinking of doing a little something for Halloween!  Stop by to see what's next!

The purse is absolutely gorgeous. So different...better than carrying the same clutch that everyone else carries.

The purse is just beautiful, I'm sure the bride to be will love it.

If you ever need a quick purse top (invisible) go to the dollar store and buy a metal retractable tape measure. Make a casing on each side of the top, cut the tape about 3/8" shorter than final casing, wrap the ends of metal tape with a cloth tape or masking tape and slip in and sew shut.
Bingo~~purse that opens and closes with a little the old coin purses.

Oh me Pam,Help, I went to counseling today for 2nd visit to find out our insurance wont pay (eventhough listed on our plan) UGH. So do you have any books, types of therapy, anything I should try, I need to resolve past issues and live in the present. Book recommendations, anything, online links, anything. Let me know. Hugs, Kim

The purse is perfect and I like how you ran the chain thru the casing, I think I prefer that. The colors are beautiful. It makes me happy to look at it!
