Too cute for a title

My friend Rachel came over last night for a little crafty fun. See what we made!!

I can't take credit for any of it really. She picked out the fabric, the design and the handles, I just helped with a little sewing and ironing. This was the first time either of us had tried the plastic handles. They were a little bit trickier than I had anticipated, but they turned out really good. I always save the handles for last because I don't really enjoy making them, so this is probably a good alternative for me.

Thanks Rach for a fun night!

Have you all signed up for Vallen's swap? She is doing an ATC swap but with a twist - it must be wall mountable in some way. I already have a ton of ideas for wall mounting, no clue about the ATC!! Oh well, should be really fun. You should all sign up, okay!!

that hand bag IS too cute...it turned out fabulous! I bet the handles were a bit tricky. Making handles is the least appealing part of pursemaking for me as well. (glad to hear that I am not the only one.)

Thanks for the plug - The ATC is going to be easy for you, don't worry. You could make a little handbag ATC.
