Over on Amy's Creative Side I challenged myself to complete a purse so that I could enter it into the amazing Purse Palooza on Sew Sweetness by the 11th of July.
Did I meet my goal?
YES! I completed my first ever frame purse the other night!! With thanks to U-Handbag, I learned how to make my very own frame purse! They included some great instructions and wah-la, about an hour and a half later I had this little sweet thing:
My corners matched perfectly - yay!
Some fruit and trees ARE the right side up - I promise!
Isn't it cute!? I love the blue gingham on the inside - so picnic-y!! Feels good to get something off my 'to-make-one-day' list and learn a new technique while I'm at it! I used the Gutermann glue for the first time and didn't make a mess = miracle! I felt high afterwards though - or was it giddy elation for making something so darn cute!? ;)
So, I'll be linking this up over at Amy's Creative Side[anyone else notice how many "Amy's" there are out there in blogland??!!]. Also linked to Sew Happy Geek'sManic Monday.
