I love to make gifts for people. It is fun to totally customize what I give, and from what many of you tell me, you like to make gifts, too. This is the "Chloe Handbag" from Lazy Girl Designs. It's made of wool, and has a magnetic snap closing. The handles are durable, lightweight black plastic.
The bag is lined with a wool pinstriped suiting, and the first initial of my recipient, "L" for Leslie, is embroidered (using my trusty Bernina from 2000) in white rayon on one of the internal pockets.
This handbag is the perfect size to keep inside a larger work bag, to pull out at lunchtime, or whenever.
Here's Leslie with her handbag. Oh...and the occasion of the gift - her birthday. We were born exactly one year apart on the same day. When we were little, on our birthday, we always each got our own cake.
And here's the VP, Operations. Fremont found her way into my interfacing bucket - making Cat Fur Studio true to its name. Cat Fur in every hem. Cat Fur forever!
