Pretty Pink Handbag

Just in the nick of time, I finished my Christmas Through the Year Club for this month.  I made this handbag with a friend in mind.  I know she will love it.  I used bright pinks and added two trims (one made of cotton, the other from ribbon).  On top of that I added a very pretty butterfly pin.  I added a generous inside pocket and used a snap closure.  I love how this handbag turned out.




Hey, I now have 4 gifts done,  should have 5, but I am not going to be down on myself for that.

  3. Wow I would never have thought that fabric would look so good. I'm really impressed that you used the magnetic snap because I have a half finished bag in my drawer which I put away when I got up to that stage and it went wrong!

    I'm only 4/5 like you too. I'm telling myself that all the lavender bags make up for it ;o)

  9. What a great bag, Talin!! Good work! I love using costume jewelry pins on purses - I haunt the yard sales and end-of-season clearance in the jewelry department watching for great pins!!
