So many things, I almost forgot some!

On the same day as finishing the green dress, Go-Go dress and knitting a pair of fuzzy dice, I also made a purse for my sister's birthday! As I was going to see her at the end of March, she told me I didn't have to mail her gift in time for her birthday on March 13. Of course, this gives me license to wait for the last minute and add it to all my other self imposed deadlines!

I think I forgot to take pictures of the fuzzy dice, but I will ask my sister to take some as they were a gift for her fiancé, Sam's 30th birthday. They aren't very digital camera savvy, so perhaps I'll get some pictures before he turns 60.

With this bag, using the "Smile Around The World" print which resembles the "It's A Small World" ride at Disneyland which my sister loves, I made my first use of store bought handles. I was delighted and shocked to see that Joann had them in stock. I'm sure it was a random occurrence and I wont count on there to be any there next time I decide to make a purse. It was fun to make little loops to attach the handles.

I told my sister that the Indian looking at the top was us.

I also finally made use of the magnetic clasps which I searched for for months and obtained months ago. They were a little out of alignment, but with stuff in the bag, you can't really tell.
