As promised, I designed this little purse from the narrow leftover tie ends of my tie skirt. It is very strong and heavily quilted. The front has a little butterfly catch where the FOE (foldover elastic) hooks through to close the purse. The strap is also from the narrow ends of a tie.
I will be able to show this at our next guild meeting, as it is a quilted item. I might even wear my tie skirt to be really matching!
