Good morning peoples. How was the weekend? I was busy busy with all kind of stuff including some picture taking with Elizabeth.
Here's how the purse turned out. Its a fancied up version of one of my new patterns, The Patchy Pouch. It's very easy to sew, and has patchy goodness on both sides. I added some rick rack between the two sections and a little cherry applique from Diaso. I also dug through my stash of goodies and found a cute cherry handkerchief. Honestly, you know I wouldn't normally have been able to cut it up, but I had two. IT'S A SICKNESS. I'm sorry, I said it. I had a backup.
One thing I really like to do is add my little PKM labels into the seam. If it doesn't match up, then I put it inside, just because it makes me happy to see it. You can make your own little ribbon with some stamps or order some from Namemaker. I also put a cute little chunk of coordinating ribbon in there, and that's fun even if you don' t have ribbon with your name on it. It serves no other purpose than to make me happy.
Thanks to everyone who's taken a KPKM button and/or signed up on the Linky list. I think it will be fun to see all the posts from market. Thanks again to Monica for helping me make that happen.
Elizabeth and I leave Tuesday morning about 4am. HOLY SMOKES it's early but I know I probably will barely sleep it's so exciting. Follow along with us on Twitter, and of course we'll be blogging along the way too. (but seriously, maybe not the first night. it's a long drive to our first destination!)
Ok, see you soon.. xop
p.s. There have been some questions about getting the radio button on your blog sidebar. I only know that if you're using new blogger you go to the layout area, select add a gadget and then select the html/java script gadget and plop the code from the little box into the text area and save it. I tried it out on a test blog and it worked. If you don't have blogger.. sorry, I have no idea how to do it.
