With all the creative people surrounding me, I thought I’d share the sewing project I finished before Christmas.
Since hubby and I were surprising our daughter and my mom with a 7-day Caribbean Cruise, I wanted to make us girls a souvenir to remember such an amazing adventure. Each fabric represented each of us; My mom loves watery blue colors, my daughter loves her zebra and me with my purple. I then cut out three purse patterns and mixed and matched each piece so our colors would be together, but not the same. I also decided to go off script a little and make my own design for the purse straps.
Even though I never had time to add the inner buttons or add an anchor patch, I do feel pretty happy with my results. This was my third project with my new sewing machine and it was a pretty ambitious one at that. Come to think of it, it might even be considered my 3rd, 4th and 5th!
