Earlier this year I posted a blog tutorial about making a Fortune Cookie Purse. I liked the project so much that I decided to submit it to Stitch Magazine. I don't subscribe to the magazine but I have looked through it on my visits to ACMoore and thought it had some cute stuff. Anyway, I thought my purse might fit their aesthetic so I sent in a proposal on a whim. I happened to hit their time period when they were accepting submissions for a special edition for spring "Stitch in Style". Well, that was winter time and finally the magazine arrived at my front porch along with my stitched up samples and so I have posted it for you.
I am apparently one of the 14 fabulous totes and purses in this issue. And to be honest this little original design really is fun, functional and simple to make. I am proudly featured on page 31 with directions on a later page. It's nice to see your name in print.
Thanks for checking it out and if you want to make one you can certainly purchase the Stitch in Style magazine which has some very cute things to make. You can also check out my earlier posts for the Fortune Cookie Purse blog entry. I can totally see these for prom in a coordinating fabric or even for a bridal party. Holds your phone, keys, a few bucks, some ID or credit card and small make-up.
