My hubbie and I never got into the whole Valentine's Day thing, but I still love all the hearts and pink & red, plus I love to be in tune with all the popular holidays, at least in a decorational kind of way.  So I made a pretty little tribute to this lovey month.  I give you my Valentine's Day Purse! 







Yay! I hope you like, I'm quite happy with it  Cheesy

I love it!  I'd carry it year round though Wink  The heart is fantastic detail and I love the striped lining too Smiley

Oh! I forgot to mention- the main part of the bag is made from a v-day place mat from Target, so I didn't do that perfect embroidery, I wish I could do that!  Cheesy

I'm sure I'll carry it longer if I don't stain the white the first day- as I am notorious for doing.  Thanks for commenting!!!!

Well, I've made about 8 or 9 bags since I've started sewing after Christmas and have studied like a million tutorials to do so- this one I actually didn't use any other tute to make so while I'm sure there's other tutes out there for a bag like mine I, at the same time, did just make this one up as I go.  I will, however, be glad to try to whip up a tute for ya later on if you'd really like  Smiley

As for the quote, I'm quite fond of it too, thanks!  Wink As my husband and I watched our "plan" slowly crumble down the drain over the past 3 years, I realized that this Shakespearian quote is so true.  Tongue

Anyway, I'll try to get on that tute for ya later on tonight!
