Purse Palooza 2012 - my entries

Here are my entries for the Purse Palooza 2012 challenge :)

The cancan bag is a gift - this print is one of my favourite fabrics - I just love the kicky look (pun intended!) :)   It was designed by Mary Stewart for Elizabeth’s Studio :)  

I thought this would make a fun zipper pull to go with the bag theme - charm is from (Etsy or Ebay - I forget which!) :)

Several weeks ago I won a scrap giveaway from the lovely Cynthia in Japan.  Here's the bag I whipped up to showcase some of the scraps :)   The paper pieced kimono block was a freebie download from the AJ Padilla site years ago (I don't think it's there any more), the back is a taupe linen, and the lining was purchased at Joanns a couple of weeks ago, just for this bag :) 

The aforementioned lining :D


  1. Pretty, pretty, love the cancan fabric.

  2. I really like the Cancan dancer zip bag... and the little bra charm is perfect for it. And I love that kimono block. I may have to get you to teach me how to do paper piecing sometime when we can get together for a sewing party.

  3. fabulous! Loving that pieced bag... but you said you'd only done one for the Palooza Extravaganza!

  4. What a thrill to see my scraps put to such beautiful use:). The bag is so pretty!
