I made a new striped purse out of some wonderfully striped fabric from Ikea.
I love Ikea’s fabric.
The purse turned out nice but it isn’t exactly what I had envisioned.
But, here’s what I do like about it:
It has a magnetic clasp which are fantastically easy to put in.
I’m embarrassed I’ve waited so long to give it a try.
The stripes line up.
It really bugs me when I see striped purses for sale with wonky stripes.
Pin people, pin!
It has an interior pocket for my cell and keys that is just the right size.
Not too big.
Not too small.
The striped band at the top wraps around to the inside to tie the two together.
I really like the way the navy stripes and magenta look together.
I like the simple pleat in the front.
Pleats and stripes are beautiful.
