Friday Adam ended up sick all day. Saturday he felt better, but I started getting sick. Last night we were both miserable, waking up all night long. He had church meetings early, but is coming home now to take care of me and the kids.
I made a really nice purse last week that I wanted to share.
It's actually hunter green. It doesn't photograph well.
I recently joined a team on Etsy. They have all sorts of teams for stores with common interests or locale. The one I joined is a a treasury-making team. Treasuries are member-curated lists on Etsy that usually have a theme. Really good treasuries are selected to be on the front page of Etsy for an hour. It's great advertising, so everyone on Etsy wants their items to be on the front page. Well, since joining this team (I'm just a trial member so far), I have ended up on the front page three times and got a sale from Australia as a result. It's pretty awesome. Anyway, I showed them the green bag and one lady said she would love to see that bag in leather. At Joanns I looked at their faux leather and found some basket weave fabric I really liked. Yesterday I worked hard and created this:
I really like this purse. My machine had issues with all the layers of taffeta in the green purse, so I made sure to buy heavy-duty needles, and they had no problems with this purse.
The inside has two pockets, one of them zippered.
