Just two more gifts for Christmas.

The bag is for my sister who LOVES little girly bags.  Don't mind my mannish sausage hands modeling it.  They're obviously meant for things like carpentry, etc.

This little paint brush roll/tote thing is a gift for my mom who takes more watercolor classes than you or I could ever imagine.  And, I have to give credit where credit is due...I used Stefanie532's tute (find it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39903.0)

And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

I really like it. How did you make the purse? I refuse to be a tute whore, but is it from a pattern or did you just wing it?

Wow! That purse is the precise shape I was thinking about making my next purse. A  fat quarter I had (its a handbag now Wink ) print inspired me to make that shape of handbag. The print of the fat quarter is little fans shaped like your purse in rows. I was wondering which type of handles to use, but wasnt sure how to go about it. I love your handle choice. Does the bag keep its shape while carrying it with stuff inside?

Thanks everyone!

Lulu Clyde: No pattern, I saw a picture in a magazine and kinda went with it.  It's really, really simple.  It has a basic Jordy bottom to keep it flat and then I rounded the top off.  I bought the handles at Joann's.

Divasews: Yeah, the bag that inspired me to make this one reminded me of a paper fan.  My husband thinks this bag looks like a coffee filter.  He's a dork.  Anyway, yeah, the bag keeps its shape when it's full of stuff.  I used a super heavyweight interfacing on both the lining and the outer material.

pinkninky: If I remember correctly, I got this fabric (spider mums) from www.equilter.com.  This is by far the BEST place online to buy fabric.  The only problem, though, is that they don't carry things for long.  I've learned that if I really like something I need to buy a LOT of it because you never know when it'll be gone.

Thanks for the nice compliments!

The paint brush roll is so pretty. I made 3 myself! Your mom is going to love it.

And that bag....WOW. It's drop-dead gorgeous. Really stunning...I would faint dead away if someone gave me that for Christmas! I totally love everything about it - the shape, the outside fabric, the lining, the preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'handles....everything.') So sexy and elegant and funky. My absolute favorite thing is the bits of reddish ribbon holding the handle. It looks like a work of art.

So fierce.

Ah I can't believe I called something 'fierce'.

Gorgeous!  All your bags are so classy, archer. Smiley
And your hands are not mannish or sausagey! Tongue  That is a beautiful ring, by the way.

Thanks, kids!

shaving kit: thanks for all the compliments, and don't worry about the "fierce" thing.  I hate using the word "dude" and I hate myself if/when it slips out.

thingwraith: *blush*  Thanks!  The ring was last years birthday present from my hubby.  He's got such good taste!
