I am running all around doing a serious happy dance here!!!! I am making purses for a shower...so far I need 50!! And I really wanted them all to be different..well as different as I can make them. So I have been searching for variations of purses. This is the mother load of jackpot here!!!! I am simply going to start at the top and any of them that would work for what I need I will make it then move on!!!
Ohh thank you for all the work you did putting this list together!! It is going to be well used!!
Thanks bunhces!!!
