What are you most proud of? This purse actually turned out to look professional. I love that. Looks like I bought this at a high end boutique.

29 Ap 2016 - Hi ladies,I am in the UK, I am now following this website, the ideas are absolutely great ! There seems to be a revival of art and craft here in the South. So many women are now looking again into this most wonderful of disciplines ie patchwork, sewing, crotchet, tatting, knitting, free sewing and producing art, the choice is great, but it is also very very nice to see a website that shares so many great ideas. I for one will be copying this handbag, I am off to the charity shop ! Greetings and good luck with your projects - Marthita Chippendale
