My First Homemade Purse

Charlie went out of town today for a company trip. He'll only be gone overnight, but it gave me a little time to finish up a project I found over at The Happy Housewife. I still haven't mastered the sewing machine so most of it I sewed by hand.

The Placemat with Pink Ribbon attached
I attached the ribbon with heavy duty double stick hem tape. The kind you iron on.

After I sewed the sides togetherAfter I sewed the corners into triangles

The purse before I attached the handles
