And this is my first post, too!  Cheesy

So I made this little purse:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v356/missnecy/S1010004.jpg

I just kind of winged it with a pair of old blue jeans & some left over material... Then, dh asked me if it was for our 7 yr old dd. My response was "no - it's for me!"

Now I'm off to drool at other people's purses...

Thanks for looking!

edited note: Often when I can't sleep I'll go back & change or fix something... so after staring at the purse for a while it now has the slim red band of fabric added to it,and I moved the flower to the left... I also added a bright yellow lining on the inside, but had troubles taking a picture that didn't look like a flash of sunlight.

I think it is cute.

I wish I had more time to craft also.  I usually have to steal back everything I make because my 4 year old takes them thinking they are for her.

Hey that's cute! I have some bamboo handles too and im thinking of making another brown hobo bag or something for the summer, but this is a good idea for using the bamboo handles! Good job littlenecy!

My sewing skills have improved so much since I first came here back in 2004... ^_^

Thank you - both of you!

And the entire time I was sewing it - my almost 4 year old son wanted to know why I wasn't making a purse for him!  Grin
