These are my sisters. I have fought with, loved, cried and laughed with each one of them. I cherish each moment I spend with them because life doesn't always deal you the best hand.
My sister, Pam, is an angel. We all miss her VERY much.
My sister, Lisa, has M.S....I wish that meant that she has "Many Sisters" syndrome. Alas, it does not....although at times, I think having so many sisters really could be described as some medical ailment requiring therapy. Hmmmm, note to self for future blog.
Lisa's wonderful and super, super patient husband works for Apple. He of course has all the latest gadgets and so naturally Lisa has an IPad. She called me and asked if I would make her a shoulder bag to carry it in because you see, this was the SECOND IPad.
She dropped the first one on the bathroom floor and it broke.
Her ever so patient and understanding husband, got her another one. She did the math...I'm glad there is at least one of us that can do the math....and figured out that it would be a lot less expensive to have her sister make her a shoulder bag than to replace another IPad.
Well, of course, I said I could make a bag.
So this is what I came up with. I had to make it twice. The first one was not quite big enough. I hope this one works. I'm putting it into the mail for her today BUT....
Now I had this other really cute smaller bag staring at me from my table. Made from the same fabric, doesn't it just scream "COLOR ME!" It looks like a coloring book page.
I loved to color as a kid, remember the smell of a new box of crayons?
I got out my fabulous Tsukeniko fabric inks.
Some fabric glitter glue.
And some sparkly big rhinestones.
I went to work, painting, glittering, gluing.....
That was so much fun! I really love how it came out.
Now my question is, what color should the strap be? Black? Pink? Purple?
What's your vote?
