Squeezing in one last finish

Leanne said we could, so I'm going to take advantage of this one last week to get a Q1 finish out there.

Frame purses.  Yippee for frame purses!  A friend asked for these MONTHS ago, but I couldn't get myself motivated enough to make them.  What was wrong with me?  They're so easy!  Armed with a fab tutorial and two frames, it was time to get stitching.


I had total freedom to choose the fabrics, but I wanted to be sure my friend will use them.  She wears lots of floral prints, usually in blues.  However nearly every floral shirt she has includes a splash of orange or yellow. I though the brights in the Echino leaves/flowers and the bright red/aqua combo might suit her well.



They're lined with a little pink floral print and Kona lime.  I love a Kona lime liner...a little splash of surprise color when you open it up.  Awesome.

In all honest these frame purses were finished last weekend.  I just didn't get myself organize enough to take a photo in time.  Leanne, thank you for our one last week of grace!  I'm off to link up my finishes!
