Hand Bag

Yesterday my oldest niece had her 9th birthday party! I was so excited to make her something special because she is a big girly girl and she wears her heart on her sleeve. Giving her a present is very fun as I love to see how excited she gets! Her favorite color is purple so I went rummaging through the remnants (50% off) at JoAnn's for some purple fabrics. I discovered a couple cute fabrics in purple and a beautiful black satin. I also had some rhinestones I bough with a coupon several weeks ago. I sort of made up my pattern as I went (loosely based off a couple purses I've seen in the sewing blogosphere), and this is how it turned out...

I even lined it with purple fabric.

Then I found a rhinestone cosmetic mirror, butterfly nail file, and light purple nail polish to put inside.

Her reaction was worth every minute I spent on it!
