Web Extra: Pretty Purses

If you’ve seen Issue 17 of Modern Quilts Unlimited, then you surely spotted these three pretty purses made with Lecien Fabrics Jelly Clips. You can follow along on making the small scrap buster, medium embroidered, and large ruched purses by heading over to MQU’s Web Extras section.

Below are the English translations of for these 3 purses. All instructions are basically the same as far as construction…only the size of the purse body template fluctuates. The actual size and shape of the template is included with each Jelly Clip package; the following images depicted are not accurate for template sizing.

Fabric used for these purses is Oasis by Flaurie & Finch for RJR Fabrics.img_9544

The small purse is a perfect opportunity to use up remaining fabric scraps or trimmings. More details on full construction of this particular purse can be found on the MQU site. img_0417

The medium purse utilized Lecien Cosmo Floss to embellish the fabric’s print. img_9546
Three stitches were used on this fabric: satin stitch, French knots, star stitch. img_9558

The large purse is perfect for adding 3D texture. I decided to ruche both sides of the purse exterior, which finished with a super cute and unique purse. img_9800
