Making Purses




I've been making lots of purses lately.  I've had this thing with purses just about my whole life.  I almost always stick with one purse until it wears out.  I'm not one of those who has to change bags to match the outfit.  But I always buy them when I'm traveling, and I've had a couple of ventures into manufacturing involving purses.  I'll tell you that story another time.  Anyway, this is what I did last night.  I bought this mola in Ohio a couple of years ago.  I thought I'd make something out of it that I would use, so the mola is not just sitting on a shelf.  I made this purse up as I went along.  I had a very small piece of the Guatemalan handwoven.  In fact, I used almost every scrap.  I had to piece the bottom of the bag together, and it has a seam in an odd place.  No one will notice though.  Anyway, this is probably about the 13th or 14th purse I've made in the last month.  What will I do with all of these??  Well, carry things to meetings, put my knitting projects in them, use them for shopping...  Can you ever have too many bags?  (Probably yes.)
