Hi everyone! I hope your weekend was a good one. I had a great weekend, but I didn't get any cards made. My mojo seems to have taken a vacation. I did make a purse for my boss's daughter though. A while back she came into my office wearing some jeans that had little flowers, peace signs, and smiley faces on them. I commented to her that they would make a cute purse when she outgrew them. She was really curious about how you would get a purse from a pair of blue jeans. So I told her. She then asked me if I would make her a purse and I told her I would.
Well several months have passed and I was thinking with school about to start, she would love to have a new purse for school. She is at a great age for a cool blue jean purse - just going into 6th grade. I went to Good Will and bought a pair of jeans for $2.00 and came home and cut them up and made her a purse.
I found some fun fabric at Michaels that has peace signs, hearts, and smiley faces on it and sewed a little belt for it. I added an iron on applique flower to the back pocket. I can't wait to give it to her. I think she will love it.
Today there is a brand new challenge on the Squigglefly blog. Be sure to take a peek at what Rhonda's Rascals have done and think about playing along with us! Have a great Monday! Holly
