Finally a project to blog about. I apologize for how long it has been since I posted something crafy, but buddy's been sick and I have been keeping myself very busy with work lately. So without further delay. . .
I made this purse for my MIL for Mother's Day out of my Fig Tree scraps. I love it. It is almost done, I just have to top stitch around the top. Please excuse the pins, a work in progress. I used some of my fancy stitches on the sides, and I really thought it gave it some flair. I thought I was quite the creative one until I noticed the directionality. I wish I would have thought about it when I picked them though...oh well, next time. Due to the bottom piece making a U shape on the purse, on one side the leaves point up and on the other side they point down. My husband says no one will be the wiser, but it still bugs me. I wish I would have picked another design or switched the direction my sewing every other vine.
Check out those dirty little boy knees. . .a sure sign spring is here!
