Gussied Up

Thank you all for your kind words and suggestions for my n*ked purse. It felt incomplete but I wasn't sure where to take it and then Joy sent me this awesome link for a fluffy flower. I had some extra time (how did that happen?) and thought I would give it a go ...



I see quite a few covered buttons in my future. Who knew they were so easy! I just used a safety pin to attach the flower to the bag incase it isn't my cousins style.


She is all gussied up, re-wrapped and back under the tree. Ahhh ... now if I could just get my bathrooms cleaned before my company arrives ...

I'm impressed that you made such a cute purse, PLUS you had a few moments to be crafty, PLUS your gifts are already wrapped. Maybe my compulsive blog checking is contributing to why MY gifts aren't done yet...

I LOVE how that flower dresses it up! Good job.
