The tale of 2 purses...............

 Carrie had I idea I should make Rachel a purse out of this calf fabric! Good idea so I ordered the  fabric and as the say the rest is history:)
 I used the moda grunge fabric for the strap and the sides. I think it worked really well.
 I just used fabric from my stash for the lining.
 So if Rachel gets a purse Ellie gets one too or the other way around! Luckily I had some of the same kind of fabric only dogs. I really liked making the purses and thinking about each grand daughter while sewing them. Lots of pockets to fill one in back and several inside.
 They had them packed full by the time they went home.
 More fabric used up in the lining. I just may live long enough to get all my fabric used.....not
 I haven't seen much of the Blue Jays all summer but they are back.
I could here this guy the other day so when I looked I found him in the trees just behind the house. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!...JMF
