Crash and Burn

I had to take a break from the sewing machine to direct Vacation Bible School. Now that is over and its time to get back to hobbies! I love the purse pocket and the pursekets design idea. I bought a pattern at the last Quilt Show….spent hours making myself one… it, love it, love it. But HATED the pattern. And I’m telling you I can figure out most anything. But that pattern was awful. “To complete the large version, repeats steps 21-24 twice” and then “For smaller version, skip to step 34”. I kept losing my place and getting confused. I also could not get all the pieces out of the yardage that it required.

Needless to say, my second attempt at the purse pockets pattern for a version for a friend ended in a horrible crash-and-burn. I tried and tried and persevered and worked and only succeeded in making my blood pressure go up. So, I finally admitted defeat, wadded it up and threw it in the trash. (I pulled it back out long enough to take a photo of the horrible thing!) And here it is above.

Thus begins my search for a pattern for an equally useful purse insert with both better construction techniques and pattern instructions.

Bleck! Onward and upward to the next project!

  1. Could one have been destined for me? Too sad, but I know the one you come up with will be awesome!
