My sister and I are only 360 days apart and her birthday is next week. I have a few surprises up my sleeve that she doesn't know about, but I have told her I would make her a new purse like the one I have posted here on my blog. I found the tutorial at http://www.rufflesandstuff.com/2009/08/by-request-giveaway.html. It is a pretty easy purse to put together, so I am hoping to get to work on it this weekend. These are the fabrics I am using. My baby sis loves COLOR and she is tall and pretty and has courage to wear things I don't! She is very chic and I just love her to "the moon and back!" We live in different states, so we don't see each other very much--how sad. I will get to see her in May when I go with my mom on the quilt retreat. She is not going, but they live very close to one another. Can't wait to see her and give her a new bag from little ol' me. LOVE YOU SIS!
