first romance ~ aqua

I know my fabric won't be in stores until October/November, but I just can't not share it with you. :)

I'll be featuring each color group over the next little bit to get you inspired.

Now. Although you know how much I love pink, this aqua runs a very close second for me so there are 9 aqua prints in First Romance and I heart every.single.one.

I made this little clasp purse in less than a few hours ... the must frustrating part was getting my glue bottle unclogged.  As soon as it was finished, I showed it to my daughter because I was all proud of it and I thought for sure she'd agree with me about how pretty it is. But she looked up at me and asked, "What are you supposed to use it for?"


She's 14.  She doesn't yet understand that - for me - it is (almost) always about the making, not the having, that is the point.

That said, I told her that it can be used as a very practical little home for coins/money, keys, ear buds, library card, fitness pass, hair elastics and bobby pins, meds, "girl stuff", bandaids, a fancy envelope for a gift card present ... and that's just for starters. If we want to continue on with sewing notion, I'll be typing forever.

By the way, I got the clasp & pattern kit from Zakka Workshop. They have plenty more styles available too! I love them.

I think this little purse is just darling, I love it. I'm wondering how hard it is to add those handles. I'll read how to soon. Thanks for making this cute little purse/whatever you want to call it.

So pretty! I use a little clasp coin purse to hold my ear buds; so easy to find in my big purse or tote bag

This turned out wonderful.
I have made several purses but always with a handle that has holes to sew it on. So, the gluing procedure would probably make me worry I would mess it up. I mean how easy is it to remove glue glops haha
I love this fabric. Always a welcome and wonderful addition to the stash party we have going on.
I have two grown daughters, 27 and 30!! I know, time flies. I remember those days though. Just keep smiling, and giving perfect advice

Thi spurs is really sweet. I have never tried making one because I am so sure i will not get the glue part right and make a mess of the whole thing. Saying that, I do have a clasp waiting to be tried out.x
