Vintage Strawberry Purse

My aunt saved a lot of my grandmother’s things and recently gave me this cute purse that granny made in the 1980’s.  I washed and ironed it and it’s my current new-to-me spring accessory.

The purse can be carried with either a short or long strap.

Granny made the applique and I think it’s incredibly cute.

I love the fabrics that Granny used for the strawberry detail.

The inside has plenty of room for my wallet and phone and even has a side pocket for extra storage.

My grandfather made the wooden handles.

Somewhere, buried deep in my attic, is a smaller version of this purse that Granny made especially for me.  Mine is blue with my monogram on one side and something that I can’t remember on the other side.  One of these days I’ll pull it out and show you.

Isn’t this a cute design?  I think Mr. SP and I could team up to make another version of this cute purse.
