Working on top of the ironing board. All those colors make me very very happy. See those scissors? Babygator bought those for me and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I was really happy with rotary scissors until she gave me REAL sewing scissors.
Up close of the button I used. Do wonky pics add character? This is not the same purse that I made last time. This is another tutorial that I got off of the net. I tried making it the first time and was not happy with it so I changed it and made it more my own.
Not the best of pics but I wanted you to be able to see the length of the handle. I am an over the shoulder girl. I will not carry a purse with tiny little handles. I have to be able to throw that purse on and go go go!!
TA DA! The purse. I am totally in love with this fabric print and the colors. You can see a pic of the kids and I in the background. It was taken years ago and is one of my favorite pictures. I added two pockets to the inside of the purse. They are on the ends of the purse (handle ends). I really am liking them there. So easy to drop my keys and my cell phone into the purse but not have to go hunting for them when I want them. This was also the first time I used iron on velcro and it ROCKS! That is what is holding the flap of the purse down.
Two years ago I would have never dreamed that I would be sewing. That was something that I was just never interested in. But when the sewing bug bit it bit HARD! I am loving this craft. Makes me wish that my grandmothers were still around to teach me. So many things that I could have learned from them and they would have willingly taught me.
My next project? I want to learn how to make microscope slide necklaces. I have all my supplies ready. I have just not taken the leap.
I also want to learn how to make those nifty blog buttons like the pantipalooza one of the side bar of my blog.
Anything you want to learn? If I know how to do what you want to learn I will try to do it and do a tutorial. Now how is that for customer service?? *snickers*
