Last minute Whoopursepalooza!

Last minute entry to the Purse Palooza! (button on your right!)

I made a cute little framed clutch using U-Handbag's Fortune Cookie pattern (and frame).

The fabric is matching the piece I used for my messenger bag makeover posted last week.  It's from the Laura Gunn Lantern Bloom collection. I love this fabric!  The lining is a bit of Denyse Schmidt to coordinate.

I didn't enter the messenger bag in the Purse Palooza because strictly speaking, I did not make the bag - I just gave it a lovely facelift. But I will say that the Palooza inspired me to make some bags in the past couple of months, so even though winning a contest is always a longshot with so many talented people out there - this event was quite effective!

I will also link up with the fabulous Friday linky parties, as usual:

  1. Oooh, that fabric is awesome, Janet. Yay for a fabulous finish! I'll have to try a purse one of these days.

  2. That is so cute. The DS inside is a great choice. They look so nice together.

  3. What a cute, cute purse! How does the fabric stay in the frame? Is it clamped in?

  4. I keep seeing this little fortune cookie bag, I have got to look into it. Yours is adorable!

  5. loving the bag - the shape and the fabrics :)

  6. Your bags are adorable!! The DS lining is perfect.
