My First Purse

I started a new blog with 11 other friends and we are making a new project every 6 weeks through 12 projects.  The catch is each cycle you have to send what you make to another member of the group.  When we have made all 12 projects, each group member will own one of your creations!

The first project was handmade totes or bags.  I had my friend carolyn's name and I made this purse and sent it to her.  This is my very first purse and I am quiet pleased with how it came out!
My good friend Karen had my name and this is the beautiful tote that I received from her! I will be toting this to guild next Monday night!

Love these batiks!!!
The next project is quilted and embellished planners!  I have to make one for my good friend Dee!  She loves Batiks too so I think I will make hers from this lucious fabric! :)

Hi Thearica, I am catching up on peoples blogs....June was hectic for me. Love this purse you have made and also the one you have received. What beautiful materials in each. I wanted to let you know that I have been using the papers you sent me ages ago. Today I have posted two books using them. Also I have done another two books in previous posts. So glad you sent me such pretty papers.

Hi Thearica!
You did a great job on the purse!
I should start sowing also...but there doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day.....
Did you ever get the card I made for you?

Greetings from a too hot Holland!

They are both great purses. I have not yet made a purse, sounds hard.
