OMG, So I know I'm kind of an over achiever, but I already made something with the fabric I got today in the 2009 Fat Quarter Swap. I was going to do a large tote, but I have been drooling over the Sew, Mama, Sew tutorial they put up yesterday using just 2 fat quarters. I knew as soon as I saw the owl fabric it would make the perfect purse. I dug out my handle that I never had a use for and got to work. Let me tell you, this is the most time I have ever spent on a purse. It took me 2.5 hours from start to finish. I accomplished following 4 different tutorials, learning 2 new skills (zippered pocket, and magnetic clasps). I am so proud of this purse, I haven't taken the grin off my face, and I want to go somewhere just to show it off. So here it is:







I managed to only make one mistake. I accidentally cut one of the owl pieces upside down, but I caught it before I sewed anything, so I was able to cut a new piece. I am going to make a wallet to match, later tonight or tomorrow.

Comments and Criticism welcome.

Its lovely! Its wonderful isn't it to sit back and look at something and think "wow I made that!" And you most certainly can say that about all that you achieved on this little number!!!
