My "creative" side....hehe....UPDATE: finished project!

I've been on the hunt for a lime green bag. No luck finding one that I just love, so the other day while I was with my son at the store looking for an appliqué for the toque that I was knitting him, I turned around and there it was....a pattern for what could potentially be my lime green purse. I bought the pattern (because I occasionally get inspired to pull out the sewing machine), R found his yarn and appliqué and away we went to find the "perfect" material. Here are some pics. I finished the purse, found some incredible material and decided that I am going to make one for a special friend for Christmas. She just might pee her pants when she sees the fabric I've found! let's hope she doesn't actually check my blog, so it doesn't ruin Christmas!!! The first picture is of the outter part of the bag. The second pic is the incredible lining that I found! Already I've had over 10 requests for these bags. Yikes. Seriously, I'm NOT a seamstress!!! I actually kind of suck at sewing!!!
