Pay It Forward to Reddirt Woman

I am finally finishing my Pay It Forward projects. First one goes to Helen! These were the steps: 1) I found two fat quarters that I especially liked and machine quilted the two together. 2) I folded the fat quarters in half and stitched and bound the sides. 3) I bound the top edge and added a ring to the inside to hook your keys to (Sara taught me this trick). You can see the black circle and bead near the top of the inside of the bag. 4) I used drapery locking rings for the circles to put the handle through. These are really slick! 5) I took a conference lanyard (educators get them all the time for name badges) and used the ring for inside and took the lanyard to give the handles some strength. I love the fabric and I hope Helen loves it too. I will mail it tomorrow after show and tell at the Pin Cushion!


  1. WOW, I love that purse. I think I might can make that. I'm sure willing to give it a go.

  2. Helen Loves It. You, DocSly, are a multi-talented woman. I'm going to make real good use of it!

    Thanks again...
