I am SO happy!

I designed and made a purse last night, and I'm really proud of the way it turned out.  (I'll post pics later today)  I wasn't sure I could part with it, because it's my favorite so far.  So, I carried it to work with me, and I went over to visit a male friend of mine whose opinion is always honest.  He didn't say anything for a minute, and handed it back to me.  So here's where I think "uh oh..." Then he says "How much?"  I told him I wasn't sure, as I hadn't figured it out last night, I went right to bed.  "Come on, gimme a ball park" So, okay, "$20"  He turns around, and I'm thinking "here it comes"  that I'm charging too much for my crappy handiwork, etc.  He pulls out 2 $20's and orders two for his granddaughters!  On my way (skipping, of course) back to my desk, I stopped and excitedly told two of my other friends.  They were happy, then told me they want to see available fabrics so they can place thier orders!

ACK!  I'm making a sample catalog this weekend so that I can catch those orders! Smiley

Ok, I'll post pics tonight...I'm just so proud, I could burst!!!!

Okay, so now here's the pics.  I know most probably aren't interested, but I'm damned proud   Grin
*Taps fingers impatiently....awaiting pic upload.....*
Here's the front:

And, the front again:

The bottom, sort of squared, sort of rounded, turned out nice:

The interior, with my label  Grin

Nice shot of the side, I'm really happy with how this turned out - it's a little dark, but that's a D ring...

Here's a full shot (please ignore my hand) with my nice padded handle and all

Thanks for the feedback Smiley  I'm pretty doggoned happy right now! Smiley
