Petal Purse

Let me start by saying I know I need another bag like I need a hole in my head but oh, well. So every now and then, I get overwhelmed with projects. I don't how to finish something or I'm not happy with it and then I get stagnant. So I turn to something functional that I can finish quickly and have that feeling of satisfaction. Sometimes it's cross stitch or a small piece and other times it's a bag. This is my friend Susan's Petal Purse pattern.
It's a nice big bag that I'm taking to the Asheville Quilt Show tomorrow. It has plenty of room for my stuff and anything I may buy. And I've made the strap just long enough to wear messenger style.
The highlight of the piece is it's beaded button. I love making these!! This bag also gave me a chance to practice freestyle machine quilting so it was an added benefit.
