After making the Claire Bag last Sat. as a sample for the store, I knew I wanted one for myself. Since I'm in love with the Al Fresco line at the moment, I decided to use it for the purse. I used some leftovers from the quilt as well as a couple extra pieces. I used the same front and back.
Lining and Pockets:
I had it all finished on Tues when I realized I hadn't measured and my lining was way too big, so I took it out and completely took it apart and cut it down and put it back together. I still need to make the checkbook cover and wonder wallet, but decided I'd move on to the next bag on my list first.
