The Case of the Exploding Purse

One of the door prizes at our weekend retreat was this Bag O' Scraps. I won it, full of scraps. My mission, should I accept it, is to make a quilted something out of the scraps. Next year's winner gets what I make. Want to see a purse explode?

Here it is, full of scraps.



Here are the scraps, released from inside the purse. They exploded into a pile twice the size of the purse!



Here is the lovely item that I won... last year's Bag Lady made this purse out of her scraps. Wonder if I can make anything half as cute for next year. You have 11.5 months to wait and see!!! :-)
