I finally got around to making a purse out of some of those embroidered animal squares I bought at an estate sale. Because the llama, llama, and duck squares are so precious to me, I thought I'd start with something not so precious -- whales. So I made a whale purse. One of them is white, so it's actually a Moby Dick purse. It has a snap and everything. I'm actually rather pleased with how it turned out. See?
It was my first experiment with gussets. Not too shabby.
