Barbara Blankenship's Victorian Purse Instructions

Barbara Blankenship is list member from Texas and one of those rare women who earns the envy of needlewomen everywhere when they see her handbag and accessories, because they all handmade and embellished!  Her CQ purse has been dubbed "that damn bag" by her fellow CQ society member Lynnis (aka Bigfoot), because everyone was always asking Barbara to show it to them! 

Barbara has kindly agreed to write up some directions for some of her goodies and allow us to post them to the SafeHaven website for our members personal use.  Please respect Barbara's copyright and do not use these patterns for commercial purposes.
