My First Tammy Bags

Oh, where exactly does the time fly?
I have been helping my kiddos finish up
their semester work, helping them study and
squeezing a few hours in of sewing.
I have a few special little girlies who I
did get a couple presents completed for.

It is my very first Tammy Bag. 
Isn't it so cute? 
I just love this Riley Blake material. 
So appropriate for a little girl.
I also finished up another
If you can guess what the recipient of this loves?
Hard to figure out, right?
My niece picked out the material a
couple months back and I was waiting to
work up one of these adorable bags up with it.
I used Aurifil 12 wt. to sew the frame onto
the purse.  It worked like a charm.
Plus the colors that I had used for
my hexagon quilt matched beautiful.
I plan to add a couple lip glosses
and maybe a finger nail polish to each of them.
A great little gift for any age girl.
I know that I will have to make myself
one to put my make-up in.
The pattern was super easy and only took a little
more than a couple hours to whip up. 
The hand sewing took the longest.
(I, of course, cheated a bit
and only hand sewed the purse frame)
They were well worth the time.

Only 18 days left!!!
Back to the Workshop.
