Needed a HUGE break from the normal stuff today, and out of the blue comes an idea. A new purse. YES! That was the ticket! I needed a new purse, it's the first day of spring, and it DIDN'T rain today like I'd thought! Win, Win and WIN! So I located some black fabric I'd been hoarding that was originally $19.99 a yard, but mind you I didn't pay that price. My nose for deals was obviously working that day - in whatever year that was. And I'm going to keep this purse for myself. Yep, selfish, but I adore this fabric. I forgot to take pics of the stages of construction, but at least I can share the finished (almost) product. I just need a big BLACK flower to pin onto it and then it's complete.
You probably can't tell from the photos, but the black flowers are actually fuzzy! Yeah, that's me and that texture thing rolling again. But isn't it cute? LOVE IT!
