Sewing, sewing, sewing

For whatever reason, I have this crazy need to sew these days. Yes, I should be making jewellery, but I want to sew instead. Fortunately I'd bought all of those fabric remnants before :) I washed a bunch of them today and have figured out a design for a purse.

Some time back I'd started making a flower focal piece using dyed feathers, tulle, and some stones and crystals. I finished that flower today and have designed a purse to go around it. Actually, the purse design can be used for other purses that I might make.... and I'm thinking that a couple of them might be well worth it :)

I'm looking forward to working on this first purse tomorrow. It really shouldn't take that long to make except that I'm using four layers of fabric as my outer fabric. I also have a dentist's appointment at 8:40am and I'm bellydancing at 5:30pm, so I may not have quite enough time to finish the first purse tomorrow :( We'll see.
