It's the bag lady again!


It's another purse that I designed and created again.  This purse measures about 7" wide and 4-1/2" tall.  The inside of the purse is 5" wide x 3-1/2" x 5/8" d.  I'll be able to make a couple note cards to include in the bag along with a gift card.  I used the jumbo grommets for the handles since I did not have ribbon to match.  The paper is by Amy Butler.  I am planning on giving this to my friend for her birthday.  I hope she'll like it!

I went to the Made in Hawaii Expo yesterday and it was sooooo crowded!! My grand daughter saw the panda at one of the booths and wanted to get it.  So she kept bugging me to make another for her.  So this morning I attempted to make her the bear which is so funny because I didn't have a pattern for it and she was telling me what colors she wanted the ears and and mouth.  It looks funny but she likes it anyway.  Just wanted to show you what my projects were this morning with her.  I guess felt animals is not my cup of tea just yet....
We also went to J's Knicknacks and I met Janis and Cheryl there for the first time.  After the Expo we headed down to Kahala Mall to Pineapple Cove.  My sisters eye doctor was there and she had to pick up her glasses so I figured I'd stop by to say hi and look around.  After that we also stopped at Photo Craft since I needed to pick up some glue and also looked around.  We made it a day and headed back home to Wahiawa!  Boy was I tired when I got home.  But of course I still had to cook dinner!  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great rest of the weekend today!
