The lining fabric that inspired “The Snails” of the Snail Trail…

Yes, this fabric is what inspired the use of the Vintage Snail Embroidery transfer that started this series in Part 1. Here it is many parts later and it’s time to create the main body of the purse fabric so that the little snail critters have a home when they are completely embroidered.

Here is the pattern, printed, cut out and pieced together. (Pattern found at Show Your Workings )

Here is the “fat quarter” lining fabric. It is folded in half so that we can get 2 pieces from one pattern cut out.

Pin the pattern to the “fat quarter”.

I prefer any short cut possible, so I employ the rotary cutter whenever there are any straight lines to cut. Set up the quilt ruler and the rotary cutter to cut the straight edges of the pattern. Cut the sides of the purse.

Notice that I left the bottom of the bag uncut. I am hoping to get the LONGEST possible purse out the fabric that we will use for this bag, so we will cut the bottom edge later. Right now, the maximum length of the purse is the entire piece of ‘snail’ fabric that you see beyond the white paper that extends beyond the pattern. (I think I’d like this little purse a little longer because I carry a LOT of junk in my purse and just need the room.)

The curves up by the handle need to be cut out with scissors. A few short snips should do it.

The entire purse lining is cut out.

The top…

and the bottom…with the extra length still attached.

In the next post, we will piece together the outside fabric. It will be made of bright green and bright blue felt and will need to be spliced together to create an entire ‘panel’ to fit onto the purse pattern.

Stay tuned!

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!
