I've been carrying the same purse since February of 2006. I know this because I blogged about it. That's pretty sad for someone who makes purses, not to mention not very good advertising. You can imagine it's beginning to show a little wear at this point. I've tried to make myself a new bag, but each time I've made one it quickly disappears, only to reappear on Alyssa's arm. This time I got smart and made one for her first, making the odds of keeping mine a little better.
This purse combines some of my favorite things, patchwork, linen, quilting and birds, so I'm definitely keeping it. If anyone else is past due for a new bag I have a couple listed here along with some other new items. I'm not the only designer stocking my esty shop. Check out the cute fabric covered push pins Alyssa made.
