Love my new Purse!

   There are a few blogs on my favorites list that I try to check out every week (sometimes it is everyday ;) ) for new stuff.  I am Momma Hear Me Roar is one of them.  A few weeks ago she decided to find a way to encourage people to give money to aid in helping Japan after the earthquake and Tsunami.  She was (and still is!) offering the Tohoku Purse pattern to anyone who donates more than $8 to help relief efforts.  Here is the link to see details if you are interested in donating.  You don't have to donate through a specific organization, I donated through my church.

This purse is ADORABLE!  The pattern is easy to read.  I would definitely buy another pattern from Cheri.
Her pattern has a pleat on the front, but I have never been a pleat kind of girl (okay and maybe I didn't want to mess up my first try of this purse)

The finished purse is about 12" tall not counting the straps.

As usual, please ignore any threads still hanging in the pictures.  It takes a few days for me to find them all and cut them and I didn't want to wait that long to take pictures.

Here is the inside with a pocket for my cell phone and one for my keys.

Love the bow!

As you can see I already started using it.  By the way, that planner is a time.mine planner.  I have used Dot Mine planners for the past few years and they are the best!  I was not paid to say that, but if someone from time.mine sees this, getting a free one for 2012 would make me very happy. :)

Off to go make an outfit to match my purse. ;)
