Back in July, I posted a new purse I had sewn which I loved (still do!).  A friend of mine saw it and thought it was fantastic, and asked me to make her one.  Since she offered to buy the fabric and hardware, I said sure.  Little did I know the little imp had mischief in mind.  She thinks my color palette is boring, too neutral, and that I should shake things up more.  Like her. Smiley  So she bought 4 different red fabrics, silver hardware, and zippers in - get this - orange, turquoise, and lavender.

She wanted it to be a hideous mess.

She was shocked when I gave her something coordinated.  She loves it, and shows it off constantly.  I will probably be getting more orders for these through her. Smiley

Behold, the Challenge Triple purse:

the big one (orange):

the middle one (lavender):

the small one (turquoise), with the other two behind:

On the hip of the happy owner:

A new detail I added to this one, that I thought of after posting my first one, is a second strap.  You can see it hanging in the last pic.  It's a wristlet type strap, which can be used (obviously) as a wristlet strap, but also as a way to hang up whatever bags you aren't using at any given time.

I am loving making these bags, and I am hoping somewhere there are people who are going to be loving buying them, so I have started another:

bwahahaha!  Who's boring, now?!?!?! Cheesy

Wow!  That's really gorgeous!  I hope your friend knows how lucky she is.

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

Thanks Spiderlady!  Yeah, she knows.  For a couple of weeks after completing it, I would get a text randomly throughout the day along the lines of "My new purse is AWESOME!  I LOVE it!!" every day. Smiley

Wow! I like the idea of this. Very nicely done and the colors go so well together. Smiley
