a gift for: mrs g, a family friend
it's done and i'm so happy with how it came together and how it finished. i've e-mailed my mom a few pictures and as soon as i get a mailing address, the everyday bag...perfect, i think, for wearing with jeans as mrs g does...will be carefully packaged and placed in the mail. i took my time on this, but really it's an easy to follow pattern, and a purse versus a tote type bag, for a little change up in any woman's wardrobe!
thanks, mom, for giving me this chance to sew for a dear friend!
and now...some planning and designing of my own. i may have a little sales opportunity. one day at a time and full moments these early summer days!
