I originally saw this purse on Lisa Stenz's blog (thanks Lisa) - a fellow CTMH consultant. She created this adorable purse and I followed the link on her blog to find the pattern. I know MANY of you were asking for the pattern...I went today to look for this and I was sad to find that the link no longer exists!
This pattern was created by Bridget Louw, and she calls these purses, "Lovestruck Purses". I will include a picture of the purse instructions and the pattern design for the purse at the bottom of this post. Please give Bridget the credit if you do create this purse - she was so kind to share this pattern with all of us! :)
I also chose to use this purse pattern to create a purse for my display board at Convention. As an Extravaganza teacher at Convention this year, I was excited to be able to use the NEW Sonoma paper pack! I thought this paper design would make a FABULOUS purse! What was even better, as I started to work with our NEW heavier weight designer paper (100 lb), I realized I will NOT have to make multiple mats for the front of the purse like I did with my first set of purses! :) I was really excited with how this purse turned out!!
It was also a LOT of fun to use so MANY of our new embellishments to add the finishing touches on this purse! :) Heirloom Assortment (purple adhesive backed flower), Antiqued Copper Designer brads, Foundry Metal Ribbon Slides, our NEW dimensional Element Monograms, and our ever faithful pearl opaque adhesive gems.
I hope you enjoyed my samples...and now it's off to create some purses of your own! :) I'd love to hear what items you plan on putting into your purses. It would be interesting to hear all of the different types of purses we can create, just by adding different contents. :)
Happy Crafting! :)
