Penelope Handbag

I recently took a class at Willett's Sew and Vac in McKinney, Texas to make this Penelope Handbag by Michelle Dorsey.

I didn't have time to shop for fabrics 
because I signed up at the last minute. 
Thankfully, I have a pretty good stash 
so I dug into it and used these batiks.

I have never sewn anything 
like this before so it was fun! 
I've mostly created art quilts in the past.

For a first handbag, this 
was probably not the easiest. 
Nevertheless, I enjoyed making it!

I really like it but 
I confess that I do not love it. 
It's much too serious for me! 

I prefer brighter, happier colors 
that evoke a bit of whimsy! 

Or a lot of whimsy

Perhaps I'll use it as a tote 
for carrying supplies to classes.
May Your Day Be Colorful and Bright!
