Dick and Jane In Love Bag
But, I have seen these little readers at the antique stores and I just love anything about books. My mother read to us so much when we were kids. That is probably why I love books so much these days.
At any rate, I was inspired by Dick and Jane books to create this handbag. It is totally my own design.....I know it is nothing special in the way of design (just a simple box cut) but it is my own pattern! I like to use my own patterns. When creating a pattern for a fabric piece, one has to really think about the construction in terms of function .....being a right brain dominant person, that is difficult for me. So each time I construct a pattern, it is a great exercise for the left side of my brain.
But on the other side (the right side of the brain) inspired me to make this purse be about Dick and Jane being in love. The sides of the purse have iron on patches of "LOVE" and hot lips, etc. Hope you enjoy viewing this project.
