I can mark 2 mini-purses off the list!

First, I want to thank my model, Gideon, who was very enthused to get his picture taken with a girl's purse. He just kept saying over and over that it was for girls. Poor kid.

I can post these because the girls that they are for are too young to get on the computer. Even though I know their mothers may read, I'm not naming names, so you just never know!

It really only took me a couple of hours. The longest part is cutting out the pieces! I also made up the pattern, so that took a few minutes, just figuring out what I wanted it to look like.

Both purses are lined with flannel and have a tie. One has a satin ribbon, and the other, a satin cord. The strap is about 24 inches long.

I'm pleased with the way they came out. They aren't perfect...so it adds a human touch, lol. It's amazing what can happen when you are top stitching a bag and a baby decides to sneak up on you underneath the table and push on the presser foot!!!

Cute, eh?

That is so wrong! Daddy would never make Gideon do something like that!

He was in trouble and this was part of his punishment!

His face in that last picture is so sad.
