Handmade gifts - for the girls

I hope I don't spoil any gifts here but I don't think my family in Chicago/Wisconsin check in too much. Stop reading now in case you do.

My sister-in-law mentioned that her daughters liked the purse I made her for her birthday. It was identical to one I made for myself. This bag was one of the first things I made when I learned to sew. It has been awhile since I made a bag so I was glad to fulfill the request. The result, 4 fun totes for my nieces. I just love how they came out. I don't have enough fabric for more in this size, but I know I can get crafty and make something with what is left over.
There are more gifts to finish and photograph. Hopefully these will get done sooner than later.

I'm hoping the same thing - my gift list was started long ago - and I fear I haven't left enough time to make everything - as usual. I LOVE the totes - your tree - your self portrait and the yummy yummy train. My blog reading has really fallen behind - too much sewing to do. :-)

so I think this is the same type of purse you made for me, although I think mine's a little longer. Well, my sister loves me purse, and I was wondering if I could commission you to make one for her??? But maybe even bigger, like a beach purse?? I'm willing to pay big bucks- she's got a birthday in March and she's hard to shop for! Let me know if you're interested; don't feel bad saying no, I know you're a busy lady :)
