Making A Pleated Fall Purse
I love pink and brown together in the Fall. Saturday I worked on my new Fall pocketbook, featuring those colors. I just can't seem to call it a purse, even though that's what the title of this post says!
When making a pocketbook with two pieces of fabric, adding a couple of pleats on each side of the bag add a little special touch to it. All you do is fold over 2 small pleats 4 inches from each side of the bottom portion and pin. You can see my basic pocketbook tutorials, all 5 parts, on my side bar under Tutorials.
Pin the upper fabric and pin some more.
Sew the seam.
Then continue on with layering the outside bag pieces with quilt batting which will look like this.

I want to make a matching key fob this week.
