“Is it wrong-side out?”
That’s what hubby asked when I showed him my new purse. “No,” I said, “it’s right-side out. It’s creative.” I know he’s wondering how a wrong-side out purse could be creative, but oh well. I’ve had this idea in my brain for a while, but only one morning last week in one of those just-before-I’m-fully-awake moments did it come to me on how to put it together.
It’s not flawless, that’s for sure. There are no pockets, for one. I never do pockets on a prototype because there’s a high probability that it will end up in the trash. In fact, there are several areas that need tweaking, but for now it’s usable and matches my new dress. Here she is with a matching mini patchfolio.
“Well hello there, Patch, how’re you doing?” asks Nigella.
And did you all know that Kathy Miller of Michael Miller Fabrics has started a blog? Lots of tutorials written by my sister Jojo, including the cloth baby shoes that are on the MMF home page!!! Exciting stuff, Joanna! And the Dandy Damask Diaper Bag that I made for Kathy is posted here. It’s fun to see a professional picture of it. And I never would have thought to use the bag to hold files, but amazingly, they fit well in there.
