I taught myself how to install a zipper last week. It's still a bit tricky for me, but I am loving it. I made this little fella out of new Heather Ross Mendocino fabric:
It was the perfect size for everything I needed to go out. I'm a big bag kind of girl, but I have been wanting something smaller for this very reason. A lady doesn't always need a purse big enough for a few diapers, wipes, leaky sippy cups, and a baggy full of Annie's bunny crackers.
I am somewhat addicted to making wristlets now. I polished off this beauty this morning:
I freezer paper stenciled the lightning bolt. I thought it needed a little majesty, and in my mind lightning bolt=instant majesty.
I also finished a tote bag yesterday made with more Mendocino. That fabric was one of my sole reasons for buying fabric when I did. It was love at first sight! I wish I would've gotten more, but I think I'll just be keeping the things I've made with it so far. Then I can look at it whenever I want!
I probably should have given it another quick iron before I took its picture, but oh well.
Also, please behold one of my labels doing its job:
I think they turned out super cute.
