Here's the small purse that I've been working on as a birthday gift for my niece. I'm not sure if owls are trendy or not, but these owls are cute either way! My sewing is getting a little bit better. There are still a lot of flaws on the purse, so don't look too closely. I was going to use fabric for the handles, but was having a hard time. Then I found this wide ribbon that I had saved. It had velcro on it and was wrapped around a blanket that I had. So I cut off the velcro and I think it ended up making great handles for the purse. The owl fabric is from Jo-Ann's Fabric. The inside of the purse is lined with corduroy squares.
A few "Pieces of Me": I organize already organized things because I think it's fun. I enjoy paper crafting (scrapbooking, card making, gluing paper, coloring pictures, and so on). I am teaching myself how to sew. It frustrates me to no end. (But, I enjoy it quite a bit.)
