Pretty Purses


I had a lovely day at Nikki's Purse Making Class yesterday. It's always fabulous to come home with a finished project after a class. I couldn't resist making a pink purse for all for me!

A WIP shot of some hammering action....

It's always great to combine lovely people, lovely crafts, and lovely food and drink too.

Belinda couldn't make it but we ended up with five gorgeous purses.

Thanks for a great day Nikki and thankyou Cathy for organising everything for us!

Bec said...

Oh Cam your purse is gorgeous!!! That looks like so much fun. I'd love to learn how to make purses like that. Was it hard? I'm just a little bit jealous... :)

Great job on the purse Cam - what a great day you all had.

Cute purses. Not that I know you but yours seems so very you... it is that pink flower fabric.

The metal bits look tricky and daunting?

Kat said...

That is really cool. I wish they did more things like that on the coast. I would love to be able to try new things like that out.

Hopefully I can do this class next year, they look a bit tricky, but the hammering makes sense. They are all so cute!
