Where did you get the pattern?

That’s the most common question in the purses and bags forum. 

The pattern came from the free tempting templates at the Stampington website

It had to be purses, because the purses and bags forum is where I hang out and post. Recently I made a paper purse (for a gift of cds) and I still posted it in the purses and bags forum. And when I’ve been really, really busy and let myself goof off for 10 minutes before bed, I slip into that forum just to see… what cute stuff others are making.

Where did you get that fabric?

. My favorite of the marshmallow treat (http://www.ricekrispies.com/Display.aspx?recipe_id=1605&kic=true) purses I created today. My (now 19 year-old) daughter bought me these Sweedish fish at Ikea. When she was little she used to like to eat uncooked pasta so I celebrated that, by using vegetable pasts for the waves and sea fronds in the fabric of the purse.

 . Appliqued flowers are one of my favorite embellishments on anything, including a purse or bag. Wow is it fun making an appliquéd rose out of sticky, sticky marshmallow goo. I used a lot of Pam spray on my hands and still kept getting stuck.

. Just like in real life I ran out of material, or in this case the polka dot sprinkles. So just like in real life I rummaged around for something else to coordinate and found the multi-colored shot-style sprinkles. After wiping marshmallow goo off the cupboard, my hands, my skirt and the counter I thought the coordinated purse flap and bag turned out pretty nicely.

Though I'd like to carry one of these shopping I don't think they'll last that long.

i would eat everything but the uncooked pasta.  your daughter must have strong teeth. 
it does make pretty seaweeds, though.

creative criticism always appreciated!

I love uncooked pasta! I loved your narration too.  Grin

Yay finally done moving!

Love 'em!  This is very strange because I'm from the bag forum too and hardly ever visit this site.  I think they're hilarious but well designed.  I'd take classy number three - a wonderful blend of chocolates and sprinkles.  Irresistible!

How adorable and yummy looking!
The rainbow sprinkle one is my favorite!  It's just too cute!

Oh... it might be too late now, but for next time, try cold water instead of pam when making rice krispee treats to keep it from sticking to your hands (I learned that one from my momma!)
