I made two items as gifts for Christmas this year.
The first was a secret santa gift for a member of www.craftsforum.co.uk.
Secret Santa gift
As I am quite new to sewing I was nervous about making this. I chose a pattern in the book Sew called 'Quilted Purse.'
This is a medium size, soft purse, with a button fasten.
Fabric cut and ready
Attaching the top flap
Open finished bag
This was a good little project. I enjoyed selecting the lining fabric to go with the outer pattern, and it looks like a pretty purse to keep things in. The quilting gave an interesting effect and did not detract from the design too much.
