I spent a little time this morning gettin' crafty. I've had an itch to do something creative lately, but my budget does not currently allow for much. JoAnn Fabrics had 50% off all clearance fabric on Saturday. I spent $1 on the outer fabric and $1 on the lining for my latest project...not bad, huh?
I sat down this morning with some newspaper to make a pattern for a new purse and three hours later I had a finished product. In that three hours I fed three children, broke up fights, got kids drinks, and repeatedly ran Gray to the other end of the house to buy myself a little time before he was unplugging the sewing machine again. I only had to unpick a seam once. It didn't turn out exactly how I pictured it when I was ogling the fabric at the store, but I am VERY pleased with my new purse. And I'm showing it off to you.
