Purses for Christmas
I made two different styles of purses for Christmas gifts this year. The style with the big flower and a handle was the easiest to make, and I loved them. I didn't take photos of all the ones I made...just the last few that were black/white/red. I did some purples, blues, greens...it was fun. Then I put gift cards in each one.
The zippered/pleated ones, I made about 12-13 of. Some of these I put gift cards in and some I put fingernail polish and misc. items for a manicure. Robin gave me one of these for my birthday and I just loved it, so I stole the idea from her. I loved how they all turned out. The tutorial was on Utube, and I finally had to watch a bit...do the sewing...then watch more...sew again...etc. At first I just thought I could remember how they did it and I made it harder than it was.
The night gowns below are a story in themselves. I think...Danelle and I must have cute these out for Braquel and Mikayla...years ago. As I made the receiving blankets and got further down in my "Mary Poppins" basket...I found them. I made them up and gave the smaller one to Ellie and the little bit larger one to Kylee. Funny huh?
