Day of the Dead Calaveras Purse






So I decided to try a new pattern just for fun. I have to tell you this pattern was NO FUN! I mean WOW! The way they designed this pattern was ridiculous! I am a perfectionist, especially when it comes to something I am planning on selling on my site. They designed this pattern so on the bottom inside the bag all the raw edges are showing. That is a big pet peeve of mine. I don't want to see the ugly raw sewn edges every time I open my purse!

Anyways so I modified the pattern as I was sewing it so that all the raw edges are on the inside. I estimated this bag would take me about an hour. It Took me 3 hours! Ugh! haha but in the end it turned out very cute. I made this one for me so I can appreciate it even though it was a pain in the butt! hahaha!

O don't worry... If you want one I have another one listed on my site just for you :-)
