Handbag......

Once upon a time, our family went shopping at Wal - Mart after church one Wed. night. (We were buying supplies for Weston's birthday party). Needless to say, Cherish and I wound up in the craft section. This handbag is a result of that . We were able to get nice material for 2.00 a yrd. So, if there's too many mistakes we won't be out as much! The girls enjoy sewing and I thought the pattern looked easy and simple enough for us ( I am NOT a seamstress). This is the result of the trial run! :) There was something about this material that I liked. One of my girls said it looks "OLD". I guess that is a hint at how old I seem to them! :D When the bag was finished it still looked Plain so, I added a small, velcro flap closure.

I have been wanting to learn to sew. I have a new machine but I have a difficult time with tension :-( So I have to get some help soon.
