I just love this pattern! This is the 5th purse I've made using it, and I have fabric to make another one for myself.
This is the thickest fabric that I've used so far with this pattern and in some cases I was sewing through six layers plus the batting that I used to line the handle. I held my breath as I sewed toward the thick parts and my Bernina went through them like nothing! Up until now I hadn't worked on a project with thick fabrics, so my machine hadn't been put to that test. I was very very pleased, since I have memories of other machines jamming and groaning.
I have a couple of Christmas projects to finish up yet, are you all ready for Christmas?
