sew nice.

remember when i said i was making a gift for someone...and i was excited about it? well, the giftee is in slc with her mother and has no access to the internet before the shower tomorrow morning...so booya. you get to open her gift tonight via the internet. sorry, heather.

for those of you that can't tell, it's a temple bag. i am beyond proud of it. #1, the fabric is darn cute, especially for a temple bag...wouldn't cha' say?

#2. that is a cute ribbon detail. spare no detail for the lovely heather.

yes. this is a cute flap....



that covers this pocket. dang i'm good. yes, those are cute antique buttons to keep your things safe inside....




and yes, those are incredible pouches inside the pocket. shoes anyone? that's what i thought.

okay, sorry for the bajillion pictures. i'm sure no one else will be impressed. and let's be serious, i'm just praying that my cute and super trendy cousin doesn't think i'm an old fuddy duddy for such a gift at her shower tomorrow.
but let's be serious. i sewed my first zipper, and she might just love me more for learning how to do it for her.
thanks to ali for letting me use her incredible sewing machine...that literally sews buttons holes for you on it's own. thanks to mom for talking me through this over the phone. thanks to heather for giving me the excuse for a project....let's hope she likes it!!!

I don't know if your cousin will be impressed, but I surely am!

I mean, it's no pink-roses-on-navy-blue-background-with-eyelet-trimming, but it'll do. ;-)
