Since my husband and I will be going out on Valentine’s Day to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, I thought that a heart purse would be a fantastic addition to my outfit.
I did alter the pattern to make the backpack a purse, but it really wasn’t hard to do.
Instead of one continuous loop, I cut it on both sides and inserted a strap. Then I sewed it back into a loop. I also added a bit of piping. I love how it makes the fabric pop!
And that fabric? That is one of Hayley’s from Mouse House Creations new Color Me Fabric line by Michael Miller! I haven’t decided if I want to color it in yet, even though that is what it is intended for. I think it is pretty great even black and white.
That is the dress that my 16 year old bought me for our wedding anniversary (here *affiliate link*). I love it. I think the bag goes well with it too.
The inside is fully lined and all edges are finished nicely.
I think this is going to be my new favorite bag!
