As you may remember, right here I alluded to “a little extra something” I put in the package for Sherry with the Vintage Sheet quilt because I was SO late getting it to her.
She has received her quilt AND the little extra something and has told me she loves them! YAY! I certainly hope she’s telling the truth. To be honest, I thought the little extra something was pretty darn cool, as did my girls, but I didn’t really have a use for it what with it both being not 0ver-the-shoulder and being smaller-than-the-big-honking-mom-purse I generally carry! Without further adieu, a Vintage Sheet Purse!:
I followed this tutorial here and the project was really easy! I bookmarked the tutorial last February and have been wanting to try it ever since. I thought my little collection of vintage sheet fat quarters provided the perfect opportunity.
The only part that gave me trouble was trying to figure out how to put in the magnetic snap at the top — my package had zero directions! And when I looked up directions via google, I realized I would have to do buttonholes. Teeny tiny buttonholes for the little prongs. And I’ve never done buttonholes. Ugh. Anyway, I eventually figured it out, so TADA!
