Dresden petal handbag - a tutorial

Dresden petal handbag - a tutorial
Have a lot of really sweet scraps lying around? I do!! I could barely sleep last night because this little bag design was in my head. Isn't it fabulous? For you, my sewing buddies, I decided to give you an early Christmas gift & make the pattern & tutorial available here! This one's picture heavy, but I promise, it's worth it! Here's the only pattern piece, a modified Dresden petal. I used 7 different fat quarter scraps, (cut 2 of each) but you could certainly use fewer. Press seams open! Use a large plate or other round edge to draw the curved edge of the top of the bag. Trim on your traced line! Lay the newly trimmed purse body onto the untrimmed body & trace your curve so that it matches. Don't throw those pieces away! Press fusible fleece onto both body pieces. Now the fun part! My curved edge was a little TOO curved, and elf-ear pointy at the edges. Next, use your quilted body piece to trace 2 lining pieces. Now, remember those circular edge pieces we saved? Cut linings to size!
