What I did Yesterday and a Winner!

I'll post the winner info first so that no one has to be in suspense. It is Mom C who loves Log Cabin blocks! Congrats to you and thanks to all who entered and shared their favorites with me. Now I have many suggestions to check out!

Since I've mostly been working on QALs and things like that, I haven't had many finishes lately. Yesterday I wanted some instant gratification and decided to try my hand at a purse. I've done a market bag, tote bag, wallet and zipper pouch, but this was my first purse.
I chose bag A (top right) from Butterick B5109.

It looked to be a simple enough introduction as there wasn't any special hardware, pleating, ruching or whatnot. There was a gusset, but it wasn't too bad. I used a print that I had purchased from Joann Fabrics specifically to make a purse someday. I didn't get a picture of the inside, but it's a combo of solid teal and more of the outside print.

All in all it turned out okay. I probably wouldn't make this bag again using this pattern. I thought some parts, like the strap, were unnecessarily complicated. But I did use the bag when I went out shopping earlier!
