So my sister-in-law's birthday was three months ago. Yes, THREE MONTHS AGO, which is when I started this purse. But then one thing came up after another and I didn't get to finish it until yesterday. I am giving it to her tomorrow, in birthday wrapping, not xmas wrapping, because I got her something else for xmas. I feel like a tool, but hopefully she'll love the purse and she'll forgive me!
I did the rainbow and hearts by hand with felt:
The circle thingy is a little contraption I made to hold the Deery Lou mirror I made her with my button machine. I also made her another mirror so she can swap them out.
This is a crappy picture of the inside because my camera was being weird, but its lined with red fabric that has tiny white hearts on it. The closure is a long strip of velcro and there is a pocket for a pen, etc. I don't really prefer velcro, but I totally forgot about the closure til the last minute and ended up having to do it by hand. I'd prefer a nice zipper or snap next time.
Then I made her a coin purse with comic book fabric, which is lined with the same fabric as the purse.
Also, at the last minute, I made her this pendant, which it totally unrelated to this section of Craftster, but oh well!
I'm just glad I finally finished it. I am also making her a little monster plushie as we speak and hopefully it will come out like I plan (my projects rarely do!).
Thanks for lookin'!!!!!!
