Damask Purse


I finally finished making a purse for myself.  I bought the materials the last time I was in California, in the LA garment district.  The black damask is an indoor/outdoor fabric, perfect for a bag that needs to withstand all types of weather.  The lining is a lovely hot pink satin.  It sewed up really well and I am so happy with how it turned out!  It only took one day to make, so I definitely see some more of these in my future!

  2. VERY NICE! tres chic! did you do the pattern yourself or did you use a purchased one? if you did, which did you use?

    I love the hot pink lining.

    • Thanks, Christine! The pattern is a modified version of Keykalou’s Small Satchel (which is available on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21707760). I enlarged the pattern by 130% and added a zippered pocket and a small cell phone pocket. I’m so glad you like it! I’ve loved the fabric for so long and have been looking for the perfect pattern to complement it!

  3. I love the purse! It turned out great, and your new blog design is fabulous! It’s “inspiring” me to give mine a fresh face and keep it going. 🙂

  4. I love the purse, but even more the fabric.
    I currently live in CA & have been dying to find a store in the Garmet district that has great damask fabric, do you by any chance remember the store name?!?


    • Hey Kim! Actually, the pink fabric is from the Garment District. I am just now realizing that the Damask fabric didn’t come from there at all! It’s from an adorable quilt shop in Morro Bay, CA, called the Cotton Ball. They should still have it, my sister picked me up another yard a couple of months ago!
