Remember the mystery birthday gift that's been on my project list for a bit? Well, her birthday has finally come so I can share with you... What did I finally make my dear friend for her birthday?
A purse! She and I have both said that if we had the creativity, we'd love to design purses for a living, so I thought a purse would make a great gift for her.
I used the Phoebe bag pattern from Artsy Crafty Babe, and just like the Poppy Pleated Tote I made before it, it was a breeze to make. In fact, I will definitely be making another one of these with some Anna Maria Horner fabrics that have been waiting in my stash for a good project.
I like this pattern because it calls for a snap closure. Since sewing zippers frightens me, a snap closure is ideal for my skills. I think this purse came together really nicely and was a great gift for a very good friend. I hope she puts it to good use :)
