Airplane Purse!

airplane print corduroy purseEver since the bowling purse, I’ve made 3 more in the same style, and have even more cut out. I have two that will be put in the shop sometime soon.. not this week, because it’s the week of the play and I have rehearsal until 10pm every night (oh joy) but next week most likely. The bad news is.. I’m keeping this one because I love it! :D

airplane print corduroy purseThe applique came out perfectly and I’m really proud of it.. the airplane print corduroy is the same vintage fabric used for the Friendly Skies pouches. It’s lined with navy blue cotton, and has a cell phone pocket and chapstick pocket on one side, out of corduroy, and a zipper pocket on the other side lined with a different airplane fabric that’s really cute.. you can’t see it well in the picture though. It closes with navy blue velcro, and it carries everything I need!

  • I realllly wish that I had money so that I could buy everything in your shop. I am absolutely in LOVE with the purses! If I had more than $.25 I’d buy one. xD

    I just realized that the lining of the bowling purse is the same as the bracelet you sent me. LOVE!
