Vera Bradley inspired Purse

OK so I have a Vera Bradley bag and got the inspiration to make my own πŸ˜‰ This bag took a total of 5 Fat Quarters, and some Warm and Natural batting (not sure of the amount) The longest part of this purse was the quilting, but once that was done, the rest went fairly…

Christmas Gift – Purse

T-shirt “makeover”
