Back from vacation

Got back on Thursday from a 6 day trip to Florida to visit "THE MOUSE'.  Friends who live in Florida came and spent 2 days with us and MJ's mom came up from south Florida to spend 3 days with us. Great time had by all.     By the time I spent 3 days with MJ's mother I some how found myself committed to making gifts for several of her friends.   She doesn't drive so she wanted gifts for her lady friends who drive her places on a regular basis.  How could I refuss.

These purses are for buddies who drive her to restaurants and movies.

This one is for the gal who drops her and picks her up from the train station when she travels.  It is a Potatoe Chip bag.(bet you can't make just one).  I think this is the 3rd one I have made.  I made my first 2 for the Ghaslies Blog Hop back in October.

I really like the bag because of all of the pockets but it just isn't big enough for my stuff.  I can carry my eye glasses or my wallet but not both so I thought I would try making the bag changing the dimensions a bit.  This is the outcome.  I think it will work for me.  I need to add a button or something to the flap of  this one since all that gray needs to be brightened up a bit.

Here is a picture of them both showing the size difference.  Not much but enough.

Back to work tomorrow.

Now I need to go and catch up on my blog reading.  Have a good week.


  1. I have that pattern but haven't made it yet. Your larger version looks just right. Love the things you made!

  2. I missed you - glad you had a good holiday. Love the bag - I heard there is new Ghastlies fabric available?

  3. Neat bags. Good idea to make things for her chauffeurettes!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
