I am incorrigible for loving colours so much! As a little girl I’ve always loved rainbows, lucky me back then it really rained nearly every afternoon in my hometown. When it didn’t and it happened to be a Saturday, Dad would remedy the situation by either washing the dog or the car, or both, and spraying water into the air so as if to make us see the rainbow he had so artistically not to say magically created right there before our very own eyes. Back then we didn’t have to save the planet nor water. I guess there were not as many people in the world as my (now 9 year-old) daughter says: “Back in the olden days”, I try to explain 30 something years ago is not classified as “olden days”, but I don’t think she gets it, would I?
So anyway this is the gift I made for her friend, another sweet little girl from school, intended for her birthday, which was last month…
It is light and kind of small just to carry the ‘essentials’, lined with small little butterflies to flutter by whenever she opens it to fetch this or that. Sure hope she likes it.
So this is it, with no further ado, it finally came to an end:
loved its corners, they gave a better shape to it and a better bottom too!
at the bottom I did a sort of a seam with the pink row!
There is a lining, with a nice couple of pockets,
I sewed some buttoms she herself picked to make it even funnier,
reinforced the handles,
used some nice cetim ribbon,
nice little chiffon flowers in each corner of my granny square.
ziper, because every woman -even the 8 year-olds, needs to hide what’s inside their purse…
It was fun and lively to make I had a great time, again for those of you who did know I totally loved a purse form the blog Magic with hooks and needles I loved it she is so super talented,there are a few changes to her project but the idea is all hers.
Off I go to bed now, work tomorrow and after that my new project…
I do hope you had the most wonderful weekend, mine was full of kid’s adventures, my daughter had no class due to a teacher convention on Thursday and Friday, so it was a bit of a vacation for us. What brings to the next info; no, I was not able to finish my crochet cushion cover yet.
Even so I was able to fasten off all those crazy pieces of yarn in the back part of it, and since that is what takes longer I believe by tomorrow I’ll be able to show you the last part of my let’s call it “project”, shall we?
Here are the recently uploaded pictures:
So, be here tomorrow to check out how it came out!
