I started another purse out of Patons Fresco for my daughter's substitute teacher who is leaving now that the other teacher is back from maternity leave. the kids all really loved her and I wanted to do something special for her. It's lined and I made several different flowers that she can change. My favorite is the green one, I sewed pink beads around a green one in the center that has a flower on it. I'm so pleased!

That's a wonderful sendoff for the teacher. Be careful. Purses are addictive!

I've never made a purse. Is that Fresco like Simply Soft at all?

What a great purse! I always felt bad for sub teachers, coming and going all the time (but they probably like it better that way :lol)
