new quilted purse with fabric from Japan

Just finished this cute little purse! Its about 8 inches high, 10 inches wide. Made from Yoko Saito fabric printed in Japan.

I made one lined pocket for the inside and also added a clip to hold keys. The yellow zipper matches this beautiful interior fabric, and it also adds an unexpected pop to the taupe colors on the outside top. The zipper pull is a button.
The handles are wood. I added the little hanging bird for just a touch of something special.

The size is perfect I think. Small enough to be modern, and big enough to hold my stuff!

I'm thinking of making more purses similar to this one and re-opening my Etsy shop (which I shuttered a while back.). I would love to know your thoughts on whether you think this would sell... and any other suggestions or comments about this purse.


  1. That is the coolest purse ever!

  2. I think it would sell--- I would buy it :-)

  3. I would buy in a heartbeat.

  4. I've seen it in person, and it is truly wonderful! It is so stylish and unique. Great idea, Teresa! It would definitely sell.
