Must Accessorize

Last month (April) was my birthday and I received this fabulous handbag from my parents for my gift. I have always been a fan of Laurel Burch art and have a few items around my home with her designs.

The handbag is large, like a small tote and I love it's roominess. I find that the older I get the larger I want my handbag to be.....what's with that? But I had to have matching accessories for it. So I got busy.

A few years ago I had another Laurel Burch handbag, one that was quite a bit smaller. It was similar in color as this new one, the indigo blues. I wasn't using it anymore and I knew I wouldn't, so I cut out the design panels from it and used them to make that small pouch you see on the left side of the photo above.

You will find the tutorials for the four accessories on the righthand side of the above photo at the 3 Creative Studios free projects page here. The Checkbook Cover and Mini Wrapfolio were written by Sue Bleiweiss and the Business Card Case and Easy Eyeglass Case were written by me.
