This is my beautiful daughter Holly.
She is not crazy about having her picture taken...can you tell?
She is modeling a purse that she recieved for Christmas. I decided this year to go back (use to do this when the kids were little) of making some of their Christmas presents. My hope was this would make everything even more special..thoughtful..less expensive etc.... Many in the family got into the spirit...we had homemade baked things in baskets..lots of sewing and lots of love.
Anyway...this purse was made from a Portabellopixie pattern by Sandi Henderson. I loved making it...a roomy bag with lots of pockets. It was made out of decorator fabric that i prewashed. Even though they ALWAYS say to dry clean...most of the time i find that prewashing doesn't hurt sqwat. Who wants to carry a fabric purse that can't be washed???Maybe everyone is not as tragically messy as i am!
More pictures of holiday treasure to come.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
