For many months now I have wanted to make purses. I finally found the time and the space to do it! Here are my first two attempts.
I have no patterns. I am just putting them together by trial and error - lots of error! Thank goodness for my trusty seam ripper!
My aim with the style of the brown purse is for a sort of "Steampunk Lite". By that I mean I want to make a style that has definite steampunk elements, but is not so over the top, so that a woman like me will feel comfortable wearing it. I am a middle aged woman and I love the steampunk style, but I would look silly in some of the fashion items out there. I'm aiming for a little more toned down version for people like me to wear.
This little green purse is not steampunk style. It's just kind of Victorian. I need to make a drawstring for it. My green ribbon is not dark enough or thick enough. So this one is not finished yet.
I'd love to hear what you think!! Please feel free to comment!
