My new purse I’m working on…..
I’m now at the place where you add some type of closure to the opening. I decided the best way to do this was to buy some snap pliers and add snaps. HA!
This is what snaps look like, I know you probably know this already, but I added just for reference…
I got my screw driver and I somehow managed to remove them without tearing my fabric….. I snapped again…..
I called my Mom, who was always a very talented seamstress in the day. Before she decided she was too old to sew…
She said she didn’t know what to tell me, she had never used pliers, but some other device that worked perfectly.
Well, I wanted to finish my purse yesterday to go on in my Etsy Shop, https://www.etsy.com/people/AllBeckysCreations, but I can’t now because I’m waiting til I go to my parents house at Thanksgiving and go with Mom to the fabric store to purchase one of these perfect snap attach machines or get her to do it!
I got so flustered yesterday, I had to sit in the den and watch HGTV til dinner. Ugh!
It’s a learning experience, right? I spent a lot of money on those pliers…. If you know how to use them and need a pair, give me an address and I’ll mail them to you. I’m afraid the snaps are up to you, I ruined all the ones I bought.
It’s gonna be Thanksgiving soon! Wow! My life is flying, and I’m trying to catch up… Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t!
My newest addition to the Etsy Shop www.etsy.com/allbeckyscreations.
I Love the sentiment in these two words. Something to ponder during the Holidays, but also every day of our lives. We should always give thanks for all the good in our lives and in the lives of those we love and care for.
I should have started these earlier, like before Halloween. But, hence that is not when I started. I promise that I am not a procrastinator, but it would appear so…. NOT! No matter…… Here they are!
Each letter is painted brown with green and gold leaf. Each is an individual letter to be hung as you like.
I will be adding a self designed purse soon. I’ve just begun to work on this purse, normally they do not take this long, but since I have no pattern to use…. just doing it as I go. (Eek!) it will be a little longer.
I’ll tell you what pattern I’ve been using and it must come to a halt! Procrastination….. I always get this way around the Holidays…. I don’t know why, because I love this time of year. I have always had a sneaky suspension that it has something to do with not wanting it to come so fast. My life use to not go by so fast. I think it would work better if it just wouldn’t do this. As we get older, we should be able to savor each and every moment. Well, we can savor these moments, if we can catch up with the moments that are flying by!
