Sewing for fun and function!

  I am loving some of the patterns that I can find online, and the amount of patterns is unreal! I recently made a couple of purses for my nieces and my SIL. I found this awesome pattern on Skip to My Lou by a blogger like myself, at Crap I've made. One of the best things is that you only need 2 yards of fabric for each purse!  The tutorial for this purse was super easy, was simple to follow and the turnout was amazing! In less than an hour I had a finished product.  I would recommend this to anyone looking to make a quick, simple and inexpensive gift.
  I also made matching fabric hair flowers that was made entirely from the scraps of the purse and can be worn either in your hair or on your new purse!

Needed items:

1 yard exterior fabric
1 yard interior fabric
Sewing Machine
Coordinating thread

That's it......amazing right!

And these are the fabric flowers that I made using the scraps from the 2 yards of fabric!
