A heads up to all readers interested in only knitting. This is not the post for you. Today’s post is going to commemorate an old friend, my turtle purse.
I have always rebelled against purses. If it can’t fit in my pockets I don’t need it, right? After getting a car and check book and such a purse became necessary. I have owned 3 purses in my life (well now 4 but more on that later.) My most recent purse (I have had is for about 4-5yrs) is now being replaced. Here is a picture of my turtle purse.
The color is accurate in the first photo, but here is a close up of the big turtle and turtle strap:
About 1.5 yrs ago the inside pocket zipper broke on the turtle purse, which is very inconvenient. So I went through my mom’s fabric stash and found some great fabric for a new purse. I drew a picture of what I wanted and gave it to my mother to make. I just got my new purse last week and I LOVE it!
The lining fabric matched perfectly. There is also a blue floral pocket inside.
Here is a close up of the texture of the outer fabric.
I really really liked the turtle purse and I am sad to see it go, but I also think my newest purse is my best one yet. It helps that I gave my old purse to my nieces for dress up and I think they will enjoy it too.
Seriously, my mom is the coolest, ever.
