Whatcha Working on Wednesday - Fall Bags

Today is Whatcha Working On Wednesday at Leslie's blog, My Country Home.

Saturday I made this Fall pocketbook and wallet for a friend who furnished the fabric. I love the fabric and am so happy that there is enough fabric to make myself one!

This time I used velcro for the wallet and am very pleased with how it turned out. I have been having trouble with the snaps that you put on using a hammer. Sometimes they held great and other times, not so great. I was always worried that the person using the wallet would be getting a defective product.

I am also still working on hand quilting the Spiderman Quilt. I must get off this computer and make a few stitches before going to work this morning! Have a great day!

Beautiful fabric... glad the velcro is working for you. I've never done snaps before. I enlarged the picture and love the "green thumb" picture you have hanging... love the yo yo's. Also, I saw the bag from the quilt shop... Cherry Pit? I think... is it a local shop?

Very nice purse and goodies to go with it :)

I have a purse to make for my friend's mom...and I keep putting it off. I could kick myself but I just am not sure exactly what she wants. I need to talk to her...

Hi Debbie,
I just love my purse. I am so happy you made one for you too. :) I will think of you each time I carry it.

Beautiful! I love that soft background color.
Hey, I have some of those magnetic clasps used for purses and wallets. If you want a few, I'll be happy to send them to you. No hammers needed, LOL!
