My best friend here in Okinawa is moving in 2 weeks, I am going to miss her tons.
 So I made her a special going away present. 

The stenciling was done with contact paper and fabric paint.

The pouch turned out okay, it is one of my first few attempts at zippers.

But I LOVE the purse!!

The fabric is so cute, I have been saving it for something special.

Onto the pics!!

Comments and critiques appreciated.

I would like to get better at the purse making!  Smiley

Oh so pretty! You have a really good eye for colour-- and as for the "getting better" well. . . how much better is there?

I love the tiny polka dots/ginormous polka dots combo. I wish I was your friend!

Great purse... I like your latch that you put in to attach your keyfob... What are the dimensions of it? I would love to do that on my next bag.
