First finish

Well....second.  I forgot about The Tramp's coffee cozy!  It's time to start a new list for 2012.  My Dad insisted we add up last year's list of finishes for a grand total.  We did....but I'm trying to forget the number darn it, because I'd hate to be in competition with myself.  Believe that and I'll tell you another one.  ;-)

So today I bought more thread.  Navy blue.  How do you run out of basic navy blue?  Sheesh.  Anyway, I was making Erin Erickson's Two Zip Hipster bag.  I first saw it on How About Orange and just had to have it too!  It's a very well written pattern and I didn't have any problems.  I used fabric and zippers I had on hand and would like to try it again as this one seems a bit Christmassy.  I wouldn't mind having one in Jessica's Outside Oslo fabric.  :-)

Ta daaaa.....




Now I need to load it up and give it a road test!

Very tempting... but no new patterns until I make some I have at home.... but I do like that purse. Love the colors.
