In the mail to Purple and Paisley...
It's far from perfect, but this model has fewer "yuckies" than my first attempt (which I'm keeping for myself). The pattern said to hand-sew the handles, but I couldn't figure out how that would work- and I didn't think that anything I came up with would be nearly as strong as my machine stitching, so I tried to make it look nice.
Brand-new labels! Fresh from Spoonflower! I got my first order last week and have been waiting to show it off... it came right when my computer started to blip. I plan to do a post on the whole process soon.
I know it isn't purple or paisley, but I love the blue jacks fabric- I hope you like it!
