Christmas Handbag for Mom
A new handbag was in order for Christmas gift-giving for my mom. I found the perfect fabric for her and I think, the perfect bag pattern. What do you think? I used the Bucket Bag tutorial from the Creative Little Daisy blog (see sidebar) and her directions were very clear. No rip-outs! A rarety for me! I used the tutorial from the Sew-Mama-Sew blog for inserting the magnetic closure. I was pretty worried about that as I've never done one before, but that turned out really easy. I still have a few more things to make in between knitting a few hats for orders. I've been keeping myself busy and out of trouble... how 'bout you? What are you all creating?
