These were two Christmas gifts I made and gave to my cute little (who is now really the big 2-1 so I should call her younger, but I like to reminder her who’s boss!) and my favorite Sister-In-Law! (Don’t tell the my other SIL’s, I don’t think they are aware of my secret crafty blogging identity, so hopefully they won’t read this!)
I am getting to be a purse pro, well at least this style of purses. I posted about my first purse I made for a friend’s B-Day, HERE. Since I had a TON of leftover grey vinyl from that project, I decided these two purse loving gals would like one for Christmas. (Oh, and I could still make ANOTHER purse! I have that much leftover!)
Two things that made process a little smoother the second (and third) time around:
- I used a piece of fabric and a piece of vinyl for the strap, it turned out much better than my first attempt where I used two pieces of vinyl. Sorry first attempt!
- Second, I used two pieces of cotton fabric to make the pocket, instead of a piece of vinyl and a piece of cotton. Again much better, and still super cute!!
I should add, my cute sister is the one in the bottom picture with the black and white purse! She came down last Sunday and I told her I needed a picture of her purse for my blog. I also told her I would crop her head out, but she’s just to cute to crop out!
