I promised myself an early bedtime tonight, so I have only about ten minutes to make good on that pledge. I made this handbag for my Godmother who celebrated a birthday recently by taking a bunch of us out to see the Boston Pops. Yeah, she’s a very nice lady. Plus she’s very fun and funny, and, hands down, is the best Godmom a girl could wish for, really.
I chose the animal fabric for two reasons: 1) she asked me where I bought it and 2) she has a thing for hippos. [Check out the hippo with the bird on its back in the photo below that shows a close-up of the fabric. I love those apple trees too!] The dimensions of the bag are based on the “Dotted Dream” pattern from Ottobre Design. I didn’t follow the pattern beyond the dimensions because I wanted this handbag to be reversible, have longer handles, and also wanted to use that little green ribbon as a closure.
OK. My ten minutes are up. Good night!
