So I had fully planned out a gift for my sister-in-law. I found out what color she is into (turquoise), and bought a whole set of coordinating red, aqua/turquoise, and grey fabrics for it. Then, as a showed my husband what I bought, he said I should make her a purse. My sister-in-law and I have enjoyed purse shopping together in the past, and as soon as he said it I realized he was right. Too bad he didn't think of it about 3 hours sooner before I bought a bunch of fabric that is now just going to be added to my stash. Oh well. My life is so hard. ;)
I used two prints from the stack (ironically neither containing turquoise), and decided to use the Buttercup pattern from Made by Rae. I was worried about the cotton being too weak for a purse, so I sewed in a layer of home decor weight fabric from my stash in between the exterior and the lining.
Doesn't it just look so cute hanging with all the stockings? ^_^
