I Finished this little goodie last night... ;-)
gotta get it in the post now... it was fun to put this together!
I love making things that fit a person specifically!
Hope she likes it...
(hope you're not reading my blog!)
Todays' 15 minutes....
I try to take 15 minutes everyday to do something for myself.
(on top of all the other stuff I have going here)
Keeps me sane...
My trusty cotton purse...(on the left) new on the right)
I made the little purse on the left about 8 or 9 years ago.
I am always on the hunt for the PERFECT NYC bag.
When you walk a lot in NYC, if your a mother,
you always need one hand free and the other to latch onto your child...
So having a purse in one hand usually doesn't work...
because you may have a lunch bag, backpack of groceries
that also needs to be carried...
I can NEVER find a long strapped SMALL, easy access bag and that is not to heavy...
So my little cotton bag was born.
I love ot take it to the beach and everywhere else.. packs easy for trips etc,
But sometimes you want something a little snazzier...
SO today, with my
15 MINUTES for me, I picked out a piece of washed out stone gray leather
at one of the local shops in my hood. (matches my hair!)
one piece cost me $45 dollars, I came home, copied my favorite little bag and
added a pocket for my Metro card(subway pass)
(which you are always searching for...)
got out some snazzy red for trim, cute huh?
got out some purse handles that I had previously bought
and made a second hand bag!
Not bad for $45!
Got two more BASICS tops put together..., or nearly...
Obviously these two will be great for kids!
And Thanks to Janet H, and Jennifer!
I got you on the list! thanks ladies!
if you two have blogs let me know...
Now I have to get back to the applique projects I have going here...
And catch up on my new show,
JUSTIFIED, with Timothy Olyphant.
