I have been wanting to make myself a new purse/tote with a winter theme but hadn't found an embroidery design that I wanted to use. http://www.embroiderydesigns.com/ has a sale on individual Dakota designs this month and I found a snowflake design that I like. So yesterday I got the purse cut out and the machine embroidery done. Then today I sewed it together and embellished it with hot fix crystals which don't really show up in the picture. Also the color of the rick rack trim doesn't show up very well but it is light blue.
So now I can put my Autumn bag up and use my Winter bag. I carry one of these every.... it's amazing how much stuff I can get in one.
