Spent some time today sewing my Christmas gifts, with this result:
I like it! It’s perhaps a trifle plain on the flap, but when I tried attaching a button to it to give it some visual focus, it didn’t work well – the shank of the button made the button floppy where it should have been tight against the fabric. So I took it off.
I’m a bit amused by having cooked it up entirely out of my stash. I bet you never knew I was capable of such subtle colors, especially after so many AIDS Rides!
Tomorrow morning I’ll be tackling the other purse – this one is going to be special, but I can’t tell you why because the recipient reads this blog. So the photos will have to wait until after Christmas!
