Quilted Western Purse/Tote













This is a western themed quilted purse that I finished this evening. The construction is the same as the purple one that I made for the swap on Fabric in Altered Art. The main difference besides the theme is this one has more in the way of embellishments. I have a steer head/skull stamp that I really like and don't get to use much. I stamped it onto 2 different pieces of leather and stitched them to a few of the fabric scraps. I added several buttons and a few charms as well. I really like the purse but I am actually tired of all of the brown fabric that I have laying all over the place and I am ready to get out something bright and cheerful. This is the first purse that I have made that I am keeping for myself. I am really looking forward to using it!
