Another finish for July

  Just thought I’d share my latest finish with you.  A colleague is having her birthday tomorrow….let’s just say she’s already had quite a number of celebrations in her lifetime!!!! She had mentioned that she really liked the bag I made from Dawn’s Baseco Mahal Kita tote pattern….DSCF0891 ….so I made her one of her own….. 001 please excuse the dark photo….I did finish it at 10pm tonight in readiness to take to work tomorrow so photographic conditions were less than perfect!!!!! I’ve used part of a Moda Mill House Inn layer cake and complemented it with ‘Family Tree’ by Pamela Lindquist for Benartex for the handles and sides, 004 and a very pretty, beige-toned floral (which I didn’t get the name of !) for the contrasting strips and the lining. 002 I even added a pocket for her little ‘special’ things that you just can’t lose in a handbag, like….. …lippy, or mobile phone, or car keys, or wallet, or chewing gum, or…or…or…..aw I don’t know….just things that are ‘spesh’!!! I do hope she likes it!  What do you think?? Big sugary hugs and happy creating! :O) Wendy XOXO
