A Little Behind

 I signed up awhile ago on Renee's blog to do her Christmas Sew Along.  So far I am lagging behind a wee bit.  Ahem.  The first month we were challenged to make a purse.  Have I mentioned before (a time or twenty) that my sewing skills are less than perfect?  But, that is not going to stop me!   Here is my bag/purse I finally finished.  It is pretty good sized.  It has some fun details like a little pocket on the front and some button love.  I even have a coordinating lining on the inside.  Fancy!!  I did have some help from my sweet friend Kathy...the sewing whiz.  She always gently guides me in the right direction and helps me fix my mistakes.  Right Kath?  :)  That rick-rack was a booger for me.  Aye Aye Aye.....


Here is the book where I found my pattern.  Hobby Lobby 40% coupon.  Gotta love that!

And, like I said before.  I never know what I will find when I turn on my camera.  Apparently this bag may also be used for a kitty carrying pouch.  In case you are in need of one.
