Thank you everyone for the nice comments!! Smiley

Concerning the machine I use, it's really just a old Kenmore sewing machine from the 70's that my mom gave me.  I just had to be gentle with it and see what it could handle and now i'm pretty rough on it but I have yet to break a needle! (or the machine for that matter...) *knock on wood*  To give you an idea of what i'm working with, here's a pic:



It basically has wood paneling. haha.

That is beautiful. You can tell from the photos that the detail work was really well done. I have no idea how difficult it is to work with the medium you chose but I am really impressed with how professional and pretty your finished product is!

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

You hit two of my favorite things ever - aqua and stripes! Love the general style, and you did a great job handling such a difficult fabric. The aqua bits on the strap are an especially nice touch.

This makes me want to get a cheeseburger and strawberry shake at the local diner before I hit the sock hop.  So, so retro, and so, so awesome.

Oh. My.  . . . Hello there, sparkly handbag.  How are you doin?

That is gorgeous - makes me almost reconsider my idea of making an argyle felted purse for my next one.  But I don't have a sewing machine of my very own right now, so . . . it will have to wait.
