My New Spring Pocketbook
Today I participated in that rite of Spring along with many other women in the world..... changing over to a Spring pocketbook. I love the winter pocketbook that I found while on my anniversary trip with hubby last Fall, but its time to tell my old friend goodbye!
I have been purchasing denim clothing from the thrift store to be repurposed into sewing fabric. So I decided to put some of this denim fabric to use in a new Spring Pocketbook.
I paired some of this wonderfully soft denim with a fat quarter a friend gave me. The fat quarter has blue in it and so it looks nice with the denim. Once I put the two together I noticed that I had some grosgrain ribbon in a green that went well with some of the background colors in the fat quarter.
I love the way it turned out. I've already transferred all the contents of my winter pocketbook into the new one!

The pocketbook is lined with the denim fabric. I made several pockets, including a narrow one for pens, nail files, etc.
One last look at my Winter pocketbook, for old times sake!
Has anybody else changed over to a spring handbag yet?
