Big Messenger Totes - Oh My!



So ever since my great friend Michelle chose to put us all in hot pink polka dots for her wedding this coming July, I have had an overwhelming urge to make pink things. At first I shuddered at the thought of pink (sorry Michelle, ya know I love you, I'm just not a pink gal) but the dress is absolutely the cutest thing ever and I really can't wait to wear it. I finally worked up the motivation to make Shannon's purse too. It's pink and turned out absolutely fantastic. It's reversible too! Not to mention, it's also got some killer interfacing that I've never used before and what a difference it makes! And I triple stitched the seams so she can love it extra hard. It's one of those customs that I would never make for myself (only because of the pink factor) but as soon as it's done for someone else I wannnnnnt one! I have enough fabric to make one more, but will I? If I did I feel like it'd have to go in my Etsy shop since I only have a measly 35 items listed right now. I've got about 25 things half finished that I have no motivation to get back to and about 78,909,609,876,098 more ideas floating around in my head. So Shannon- enjoy your purse, I will be eternally jealous. :)
