A purse I hated making... and a new SWAP shirt!

This purse to the left here is from Butterick pattern 4822
and I hate it... not the purse .. for some reason I hated making it! I had to make myself finish it! I hate UFOs... so I pulled through it... then I threw away this part of the pattern... never to be made again by me... I'd like to try the ruffle purse that is included in this pattern.. that looks like something I would enjoy making... the peacock my mighty machine did on this purse is really pretty though.

Then I started on another red SWAP top... first I had my mighty machine to embroidery this little design... it was a challange because this fabric is a super light weight knit! Pain in the a**!!! I threw away 3 other tries before this one finally sewed out all the way!
Tomorrow I will post a pic of the completed shirt.. I like it alot!
I have to work on OPS (other peoples stuff) tomorrow and maybe some little prizes for my upcoming party on FRIDAY!

I have had a few projects that I have thrown away halfway through the process. Sometimes, the item is just not the right "fit".

Good blog by the way!
