I found a good color fabric for a spring purse and coincidentally I found the headliner in the right color, all on sale, how often does that happen?!
After looking over all my purse patterns, I settled on the "Phoebe Bag" by Rebeka Lambert of Artsy Craftsy Babe. I've made this purse before, for myself and I love the size of it, not too big, not too small, I thought it would be a good size purse for my mother-in-law.
I had difficulties sewing the headliner right sides together, I don't know how many of you have tried using headliner for sewing purposes, but the back side is foam, it kept getting stuck on the foot, so I did the next best thing, I sewed it right side out and let the seams show. I know it doesn't make a nice, neat looking purse, but I don't think my mother-in-law will mind. I have seen purses made like this before, it just isn't the best quality, you mostly find them in the less expensive retail stores.
All in all I think it turned out pretty good, and it looks nice from the outside. I hope she likes it!
