Then I'll cut out the pattern pieces and begin assembling the purse. I created this purse pattern myself and when I made the first one for myself, I decided that after these, I wouldn't make purses for others. They're just fiddly and take a while. But now, I think that as I just make this purse, without the added trouble of designing the pattern, it might not be too bad. There's something about being familiar with a pattern that makes it much more enjoyable.
Do you make purses? Is there a trick to making the process more enjoyable?
