X Bag purse

After being at the boutique at the quilt show I got inspired to make purses. I have been a collector of purse patterns for a while now however have not made one. Well that changed this week. I made 2. The pattern is the X Bag get it here. I started with this sparkly one. I had issues with the binding.

This one I bought 2 pairs of size 24 jeans at the second hand store. I cut them up and lengthened the handle to make a sling purse. The seams were too thick to sew through. Next one I will line the jeans with cotton for one of the ladies in my office.
