Grommet Purse

Tonight I was super productive! I cleaned, did laundry, and sewed. I put the grommets in the Wallet & Grommet purse I made last night. Then I made the handles and put them in as well. This purse is one of the quickest and easiest patterns I have ever worked with. I'm teaching a class in October on how to make it. It's probably my favorite grommet purse I've made so far.
This is the front of the purse, with the tie on the handle.
A close up of the tie, handles, and decorative stitching I did. I did a decorative stitch with King Tut thread on  the top and the handles.
The back of the bag. I love how elegant and dressy this bag looks. The grommets are a golden color.
I'll probably make the wallet too, just to see how it goes. It won't be tomorrow night though. I'm going out with my quilt shop friends for a night at the fair. We're going to look at the quilts and hang out and eat cream puffs. I've missed getting together with them, so am really looking forward to our girls night out.
