Going in Style to Quilt Market

My good friend and co-curator for Dinner at Eight Artists, Leslie Tucker Jenison has her first line of fabric coming out at Fall Quilt Market!  I am so exited for her!  RJR Fabrics, Urban Artifacts, Quilt with Love

Sizzix Fab / Big Shot die cutting machine, the best die cutter on the planet in my humble opinion

Enter Hexagons. My favorite shape to cut out on a die cutting machine, and certainly not my hand. These are small and less than 1" in size

I bought this purse at a local thrift store, and it was in excellent condition.  I taped off parts that I didn't want paint on.  Then painted all of pink with white gesso. It is the perfect canvas for my project

Creating a new purse with hexagons in Leslie's new fabric line. I am using Liquitex Matte Medium as my glue for this decoupage project

It kinda reminds me of those gum wrapper purses. Both sides of the purse will be different. I call it artistic license

The other side. Next will be trimming, sealing, sanding, and sealing some more

Finished decoupaged purse in 'Urban Artifacts' by Leslie Tucker Jenison!

The flip side!  This will be on display in the RJR Fabrics booth at Quilt Market in Houston!  Hope to see you there!


  1. Wonderful bag! Great idea.

  2. Jamie, I LOVE what you did with that purse. I am often in thrift shops and volunteer for one every month and always look at the purses, but never thought about painting them. Such a great idea and great way to show Leslie's fabric. Thanks for the inspiration this morning!

  3. Wonderful design for the new fabrics!

  4. Outstanding Purse Project! You will get lots of interest from this!
