Here was my BIG summer project!!!They made up really quickly. It was the lining and the flower, and just "assembling" everything that took the time. The blog that I found the pattern on, ((link at the end)said that she lined the purses and the handles, so that the would hold up better. And since these are going to 2 young little girls (Hi Sierra & Hannah!) I wanted them to last!!
Here are the purses in production:
No pics of the purses while I was crocheting them... I was having so much fun - didn't even cross my mind to take a pic!!
Then, I made the flowers. Sorry I don't have the link for the patterns. I thought those would be easy to find... there are patterns for flowers ALL over the internet....
But, when you need one.... not there....
I hunted and hunted....and finally found some, I think they turned out VERY nicely!
Here they are waiting for their "insides"
I thought it would be hard to find fabric that matched, but it wasn't.
I used yarn that I already had, then after they were all finished, I looked for the lining....
In hind sight, I guess that wasn't the "correct' thing to do...
but, it worked out!!
Then sewing in the lining....
The final touches: the snaps and the labels....
love the labels.....
I learned a lot from making these... they weren't hard.. they were time consuming... but, knowing that my sweet nieces would LOVE them... make it a labor of love!!!
Here is the promised link to the pattern

Ok, so when I saw this I pinned it!!!
I had to!!!!
I pinned it at the beginning of summer, and I have been thinking about it ALL summer!!
It has been haunting me!!
I read a blog one time that said she made a list of all of her unfinished projects and posted it on her blog, to help her be more accountable.
I thought about that.... but, the post might be too long for ANYONE to read....
Just suffice to say.... I have my fair share of unfinished projects.... and it just makes me sick to read my Crochet Board
and see all the new & cute & fun & useful projects I could be making!!!
I really HAVE been making things this summer... yes, I have started FAR more than I have completed.
But, I do have to say that I have not POSTED everything that I have completed!!
So, here is my goal.... to post when I complete... how often? not sure....
Well, I just finished a big project that I started this summer - and it was hard to complete - that is why it took me all summer... but, I just put the final touches on it today -
I will be posting those pics tomorrow....
Not crochet related:
I worked on this tonight:
You print out the leaves, and then cut them out.
It was easy, and I have more to cut out....
My inspiration was from Under the Table and Dreaming
