After yesterday, I decided it was perhaps best not to wander out today, so I started a project instead.
It's some kind of law of physics that a vacuum must be filled, and thus it is when I've cleared off a wee bit of space in which to work.
Using this basic pattern from http://mollychicken.blogs.com/my_weblog/ I modified it to be less of a giant capacious handbag that would store a three volume novel of more than revolting sentimentality, and more of a purse.
The first one took several hours, two hours of which were spent thinking.I love a messy creation station!
It looks more like an apron than a purse!
I always have to have twice the pockets that other people have.
I liked it so much I made a second one!
This one has shorter straps and is less wide.
Notice how Mackie has moved on over on TOP of the pink one.
Lip smackin' good!
