This weekend I made a fun purse using an Amy Butler pattern. I can never stick to a pattern so I made a lot of modifications. Next time I make it again I will create a new improved pattern and share it :)
But I do have a Flower Power Pattern to share that I made up to add spice to any purse!
- 1/4-1/2 yard fabric
- large button
- coordinating thread
- hand needle
- 1/4-1/2 yard fusible interfacing
- Flower Power pattern
1: Cut out pattern (adjust size if smaller flower is desired) and cut out 2 for each of the 5 petals.
2: Cut out 1 interfacing for every petal (5), then iron interfacing to fabric.
3: Sew 1 interfacing fused fabric with 1 non fused fabric petal, clip edges.
4: Turn petal inside out, iron, and stitch down.
5: Pleat end of petal, iron, and sew in place.
6: Arrange petals and tack down with needle and thread. Hand sew on button. Sew or pin flower to purse, hat, clothing, etc.
How easy was that to add a little spice and pizazz!
