3. Fuse interfacing to the wrong side of the remaining purse top sections.

  Quilt two top sections and interface the remaining two.

4. With right sides together, seam enough bias strips for each purse top section (A). Fold in half, wrong sides together, and press. Sew a row of long gathering stitches about 1/4 inch from the fold and the length of the strip. Pull up the bobbin thread to gather.

  Connect the short bias strips to make one long strip.
  Fold the bias strips together lengthwise and sew gathering stitches along fold.


  Gather the bias ruffles by pulling up on the bobbin thread.

MaryRay writes: Oh! They are really hard to read. Here are the numbers: Section C - 2 1/2" x 8 1/2"; Section A - 3 3/4" x 9 1/2"; Section B - 6" x 17 1/2". Hope this helps. Also, if you right click on the pattern, then click copy and paste it into a word document it's a little easier to read -- but I'll try to see if I can replace what's up with a clearer pattern.
