Step Two: Sewing the Outer Petals

I started sewing on the Wedding Purse.  Once I got into it I found it was not as difficult as it sounded like it was going to be.  First I stitched the outer bag pieces together.

Then I stitched the lining leaving a 2" gap to turn.  Next the two pieces were pinned together.

Then I sewed the two together with the right sides of the fabric together.  I turned the bag right side out through the gap I left and ironed the petals.

So far so good.  Tomorrow I will work on the outer petals.

I did start to plan my new pillows, too.  Looks like I have plenty to keep me busy this weekend.

Thank you for your patience with my small posts.  Still figuring out the work/hobby/husband balance.
