Oh I do like being a pattern tester for Nicole Mallalieu Design! The pattern for the Puff purse arrived in the mail on Wednesday – by Thursday night it was finished – I just couldn’t help myself.
The outer fabrics are from the ones that Ravenhill sent me. I’m really enjoying using them; thanks again! Other supplies, including the frame, interfacing and wadding, came from Nicole Mallalieu Design – oh, except the seed beads. They were in the stash but I think they were originally from Spotlight. The lining fabric was from my stash.
And guess what – there is a larger, hand-bag sized version of this pattern coming up soon as well – I managed a sneak peek today when I dropped in to Nikki’s studio to pick up some more frames and other supplies. Fingers crossed that I get to test that pattern too!
I can see many more of these little purses in my future. They fit into the palm of your hand, and are a terrific way to feature small pieces of fabric. It took me about two and a half hours to make from start to finish, albeit in half-hour bursts fitted in around the kid’s activities. I think that this pattern is about ready to roll off the presses, so keep an eye on Nikki’s blog or website if you would like one.
