An Awesome Saturday

Yay, Saturday the 7th finally rolled around, and I was off to the purse course. Unfortunately it was nada for the babysitting, but it turns out she was quite handy as a photographer...
A bunch of crafty women....

all putting together their first purses with frames. Lots of ironing as usual!


Fueled by coffee and yummy snacks (had to go out and buy the red capsicum dip today!)

Little Miss amused herself by make this incredible likeness of Nikki- in Hama beads.

and I have this snazzy purse to show for it. Fabric from my pal Liesel.

I soooo recommend Nikki's classes, even though you can read the pattern and get great tips and make it at home, having someone to ask 'is this ok?" is just the best. Even better, you go home so inspired to make more and more. Not to mention the fun and good chats. And the studio of products.....Now just to get some frames and Xmas shopping is half done!
