P.S. It may look crooked because of the first picture but it really isn't. The one side was just pulled all the way up where the other side was laying down before. Didn't want you to think I am a totally incompetent sewer and put a picture on the internet of something crooked. It isn't crooked. lol

Yet another project I found online that I fell in love with. Of course sometimes I am bias and just love how my product turns out better than the one I get the idea from. I fell in love with these fabrics at the store and couldn't wait to get started. I have done 4 projects in the last three days. It has been awesome. It feels so good to make something yourself and like it better than something store bought. I decided to add some extra pockets on the inside of this purse. I wanted one with a closure for those special items but I didn't want to do a zipper since I still haven't tackled that one yet. I used snap buttons. I did a bigger snap button pocket on one side and 2 different size pockets on the other side. I still have enough fabric left over that I will probably make a mini me purse for my daughter. I love to match her, although, she probably won't like it as much when she is older. I can get away with it for now cause she is 4 1/2. She thinks I am a cool mom. I hope I am. :) I can't wait to use this purse. I hope people will notice it since it is different than anything you can buy at the store then I can take credit for making it. It feels like an accomplishment to make things. It is amazing that you can make something the same as someone else and it is so individual. I love it.
I found this skirt on another website and fell in love with it. I decided I would make matching ones for both my daughter and I. They were very time consuming. They took me about 8 hours to do but once I start something sometimes it is hard for me to put it down until I am finished. I started it yesterday morning and finished late yesterday afternoon. I wish I would have put the ruffles down just a bit but I think they are still just as cute. I love them. The one for my daughter is just so cute on her. I will post a pic later with both of us wearing them. I have to make sure I am picture worthy before taking a picture of myself. I am very weird that way. I don't like remembering how I looked on my frumpy or bad days. lol. I did make a pencil skirt as well yesterday and I will post that later as well. I guess it is ok to say that I am pretty good at gathering/ruffling after the last couple of days. :) I have another surprise project I am going to start tomorrow. You will love to see it when it is done.
