It never fails. One week you're thinking beach/sun/flip-flops, then school starts and immediately you jump to apples/blankets/Halloween.
Then you have all the cozy, fall inspiration from the Papertrey Blog Hop:
This purse project is inspired from these lovely fall textures, and the Make it Monday challenge to die cut fabric.
This tweed is die cut with the Favor It 1 die. I cut off the die cut handles, notched them at the base, and substituted real leather straps. The sewing was a little challenging for me, but let's just say as the author of this blog post I reserve the right to only show you the better side : ) A metal monogram is an easy way to personalize it for a gift.
Also, if you are using this for a gift idea, take advantage of the 3D pocket area. It's the perfect place to fill with money. Roll the money using a bamboo skewer for something a little different.
If you are using this for a 30th birthday present you can roll 30 one dollar bills. The same works for a 20th, 40th, etc. birthday.
Thanks for looking!
