made just for me

So awhile back, Rachel posted on her blog about this purse she found on Etsy from seller daphnenen. It was totally cute, but there was no way I was spending $75 or whatever it was. So I emailed a link to the purse to my mom and asked if she would be able to make something similar. The pics from the website weren't all that great but she figured she'd be able to come up with something similar.

So I was over my parents house and all of a sudden, my mom comes upstairs with this crappy old vinyl bag filled with crappy old curlers. The bag was very similar to the shape and style of the purse I had sent her. So she ripped apart the crappy old purse and used it as a pattern for a new one. We made some minor changes, bought some fun fabric, and voila...a purse for me! I'm so excited! There's multiple pockets on the inside and I also had her add some pockets to the backside of the purse. We've already discussed changing up the pattern for another purse. Why didn't I think of asking my mom to make purses for me earlier on?!?! Now I just need to learn how to sew....
