Look at these little wire dress forms. Aren’t they cute? They are from Pier 1 Kids. These would look so cool in my sewing room. Seriously, I think there’s a whole untapped market of craft room/sewing room art out there!
Okay, considering the issues that this purse has, this is a pretty good picture. This is an idea I came up in one of those moments just before I fell asleep at night – 2 pleats in the front so that the top of the purse is smaller than the bottom. And naturally, it will curve upward at the sides. This is a prototype – the exterior worked, but I messed up on the liner. SEWING LESSON: if you want the top of the bag to curve, the LINER MUST BE CURVED AS WELL – NOT STRAIGHT. I’m going to try this style again. I think this one will go in the pile of Christmas gifts to little girls who won’t know the difference – is that wrong? Now that I’ve actually typed it, I feel like I should feel guilty about it.
