Thought it would be a nice idea to make purses to go with my handbags and wanted to do something more like the purse I always use so I could make one and use it myself - BIG mistake  :S - anyway after a few minor disasters with fabric and misunderstanding the pattern it's done and I'm pleased but I now need to clear my head before I make any more! I hope ALL you sewing project are going better than this one has for me!

Lovely work Lizzielogs.

It looks like it would be a complicated make...I've never ventured into bag/purse making.

It looks great, doesn't look like you've had problems with it.

Great job.  An NCW I believe?   I've made a couple.   Made one for my mum and everywhere she takes it people ask about it.  When I took mine on holiday one evening the lady sat next to me asked about it and asked if I made for other people. NOOOOOO.  with the time it take it would be prohibitively expensive.  I know lots of people make and sell them but I wouldn't be quick enough nowadays.

That's worked out really well Lizzie.  I have got that pattern but have not yet got anywhere near attempting to make one.
Life's too short for ironing.

Really lovely Lizzie!  Great fabric too.

I have a similar pattern, but like Plosh haven't yet got around to it.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Yes, it's an NCW (Necessary Clutch Wallet) if any of you do fancy it find and use the card slot tutorial where you cut the former out of card - it's a game changer - only sorry I didn't find it sooner!!
Thanks for the comments girls x

@DementedFairy and @Lizzielogs oh you enablers you!
I just ordered and downloaded the pattern... but I have a stack of projects to complete and I must also get some cramming done for theory tests that are looming on my horizon.

But what a lovely thing a NCW is  :) My life is enriched, thank you  :)

If you DO ever get round to making it - this really helps
