Just look at what my fabulous seester sent me in the mail!
What has to be the most adorable clutch of all time. . .
But wait! There's more. . .
What a pretty package!
Not only did I get this fabulous clutch, but it was filled with goodies! A trio of lip glosses, some yummy body butter, and a super-cool Mickey sticker dispenser! Did I win the mail lottery or what?
I <3 the mismatched buttons! *swoon*
The inside has what I can only assume is handsewn lining in a gorgeous plaid! The buttons were a clever departure from the pattern for the addition of an optional strap.
Ribbon straps! In two different colors, no less! I can't decide which one I like more. : )
Now for the real shocker: this was my seester's first knitting project ever! I love that she added her own design element with the straps. Any woman who can look at a knitting pattern and think, "I can improve on that" is definitely a girl after my own heart! One of the things I'm looking forward to with being published is seeing how different people interpret my pattern with their own unique ideas. (That is, assuming someone actually decides to use my pattern. It would kind of be a letdown if no one wanted to make one of my handbags!)
Anyway, I am completely in love with this gift! Hopefully it is the first of many more handmade gifts to come. : )
Till next time,
PS - I converted another unsuspecting person into a knitter! *insert maniacal laughter here*
