Well, since the Green Bag Swap I've been making one more purse, for my best friend's birthday and finally ended it!  Grin


It's kind of a mix between Tinafish's hobo-bag tutorial and Terhen's tutorial for the slouchy hobo-bag too, so THANKS to them!  Roll Eyes



here are 2 details:



this is the aplique I embroidered just for her..!  Roll Eyes  It isn't exactly rouuuuunnnndd, but it isn't as "badly cut" as it looks in the pic...  Undecided


Sure hope she likes it!  Smiley

ehehheh I hope she'll think the same..!  Roll Eyes  I gave it a really hard work trying to make it as perfect as I could, but the fabric kinda streaches while going through the sewing machine...  Undecided
Anyways, I though the same as U but I'm sure U understand the AnXiEtY of giving my first (this much elaborated and a purse) crafted gift...  Wink


And thank U too dia   Wink
