I spent most of last week sick to my stomach...with excitement, because I was awaiting the arrival of this, direct from London:
Eyeglass case wristlet kit (from u-handbag--photos from their website).
And it arrived today. With a big blue "Royal Mail" sticker slapped on the front. And a customs label. Ooo-wee baby--an international shipment! I have had my eye on this for ages--I love the cheery fabric, inside and out, and the entire kit comes with everything except the sewing supplies and the glue. I would order sooo many more of these kits, but the exchange rate between US and UK doesn't work in my favor, so I have to be picky. I also bought a pattern for another type of frame clutch. I'll invest in some frames once I see how this one goes. This may be my weekend project.
But first...I have to turn this:
Amy Butler's "Love" collection, Cypress print, in Paisley Mint
...into a bag. I've made this bag before but now there are some modifications to make to it. For one thing, it needs to be shorter. That part was easier than I thought. It also needs to have a zipper closure. I think I've figured out in my head how I want to go about doing this, since it's not a standard application, so we'll see how it goes. Fingers crossed...
