and holy moly is she ever cute!!!
I couldn't help myself. I just had to make her.
Funny story. When I finished making it, the first thing I did was show it to my 12 year old, thinking she would be as excited about it as I was. Her response ... mmmm ... not what I expected. She just looked at me and said, in her best oh-so-unimpressed-12-year-old-style, "But what good is it? What does it do? What's the point of it?" (Bless her sweet little heart, right? Don't worry, I didn't ground her or anything.)
I know you - dear reader - get that making things is more often about the making, and not its function (although when the two meet, it's a bonus). But she got me thinking. Hmmm. I wonder if I could use this teeny tiny little 3" x 4" x 1/2" purse for something. So I went back to my sewing room and found the perfect thing ... my business cards! BAM! I marched back down the stairs and triumphantly displayed to said child that my newest creation had a purpose in life. :)
We laughed. And I think she was impressed after all.
I hope your initial thoughts are maybe just a little more enthusiastic, and that it makes you smile.
I'm particularly pleased with the embroidery stitches that simulate the lace I used on the mama version. And in case you're wondering, the geese are 1/2" tall and 5/8" wide. Eeeep! :)
PS: Yes I painted my nails red for this photo shoot. LOL!
