I Want One...

A few weeks ago, well actually months ( my time flies) I made a red purse for my daughter for her birthday. The neighbours little girl was here and said "I Want one". I then asked her when her birthday was and it was this month. I told he rperhaps she would get one for her birthday.

Time was getting close now and the kids were finally back in school ( I get nothing done with the kids out for summer break) I chose a pattern and then actually decided on this pattern instead. I altered it slightly, as I typically do. It is a small clutch/over the shoulder style purse.

The pattern I used was from Blue Calla - the Gerbera Mini Crossbody Bag.
I did not do the gusset bottom.

Inside I did a small zippered side pocket and added a little dragonfly charm to the pull.

The back is pretty plain.

 I die cut some fabric into flower layers and added a rivet to attach to the outside for fun. The shoulder strap is removable.

She did get it in time for her birthday, unfortunately I was not there to see her reaction, but her mom said she liked it and so did she.

Have a creative day,

CASE of the Birthday Note Card

 My hubby asked me to make his mother a birthday card, so I went to Pinterest and said pick something out that looks like a card you would give her. He picked one similar to this. Of course I couldn't make it exactly, 1. I wouldn't have same supplies and 2. that would be unfair to make exactly to the original artist. I love his choice as it is a style I enjoy.

The sentiment is stamped in permanent Black ink. and then several hearts are added on pop ups to add dimension to it.

The tag is attached to the twine wrapped around the note page. A sentiment is also stamped in black permanent ink and another heart added to tie it all together.

I added sponged vintage photo ink around the edges of the elements except the hearts (oops).

Thanks for checking in,
