So shiny

I felt a sudden surge of inspiration the other day and had an image of a purse pattern pop in my head. I sat down and started drawing. Surprisingly, what I had drawn didn't seem too difficult. After a trip to the fabric store, I came home with some brocade, lining, D-rings, buttons, and cording. And here's what materialized:

I'm pretty proud of myself for coming up with my own pattern/design and it actually came out right. As Kaylee would say, it came out just shiny.

In other news, I finally buckled down and bought myself a body form. Hopefully this will inspire to practice making my own apparel. I have no excuse now. So keep an eye out for some new projects!
