It's Throwback Thursday here at Quiltin' Jenny, and I hope you'll link up and share your own creative adventures from your pre-blogging days.
Today's projects are some wood bottomed purses that (I think) a fellow guild member designed several years ago. These are clever little tote bags with a piece of 2x4 on the bottom. You make the whole bag - including lining, pockets, and handle - and then fit it around the edges of the board inside out. A staple gun around the edges holds it in place; then you flip it right side out and add the decorative tacks to finish it.
I made several others to give as gifts, but these are the ones I could find pictures of. They were a great way to show off a border print or novelty fabric, and I had a lot of fun making them.
Do you have an
old mature holiday craft to share with us this week?
