Look what I made!

Presh is going to a birthday party tomorrow & she wanted to give her friend a homemade gift.  I searched 'easy purse' and found a simple template here: http://www.tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html. I am such a rookie sewer, but I do enjoy it! 
Shirley gave me the neon fabric a few years ago & I picked up the polka dotted square ages back. 
Using materials we have in the house makes me so happy!
Here is the purse with my phone so you can see the size. The base of the original template is 17", mine is 10". I chose to make a smaller purse because of my fabric size as well as the size of the birthday girl. She's 6!
I typically don't follow a pattern when I sew...let me tell you, it was so much easier! Creating my own visions is fun, but this little bag is very easy to make. The only frustration I had was finding a button. The button I found has a little glitter. Super festive!

Suvi asked that we put something in the purse, so I found two post it pads that match the green and blue.

So cute, Jenny! I have a sewing machine, lots of fabric, and even more good intentions. Inspired!

I am inviting Suv's to my birthday party next year! Excellent gift.

You are inspiring. My sewing skills are very lacking. I break needles, NEVER measure, etc. But, I am trying.....
