Last night I decided I best get my rear in gear and start making gifts for some of the ladies on my list.
Every year Joan Hawley of Lazy Girl Designs gifts us with a free pattern and when she posted this one of the Noriko handbag last Monday I knew it would be perfect for my niece. The picture on the left shows it closed and the one on the right is with the sides folded out a bit. When it is full the bottom curves out in order to hold more of those "treasures" we all like to carry along with us. I plan to make her a coordinating Wonder Wallet, also from Lazy Girl Designs and perhaps a tissue holder to round out the ensemble.
Thank you Joan for such a wonderful gift!
I have a full day of sewing planned today. On the to do list - a bag for my sister in law. Wish me luck!
