Birthdays and Presents

Well, my birthday was last Saturday. I turned 30. I see no difference, so I guess that's good. For my birthday I decided to treat myself to something I made. So I made myself a pink and brown purse. I used scraps from other projects. I used brown corduroy from a jacket I am making. I used a bunch of pink cotton fabric from a few baby quilts I've made. And this is what I came out with. It's certainly not my finest work, but it went together quickly, and it has lots of my favorite pink fabrics, and I just LOVE corduroy. It's big enough to carry the essentials, plus some. I can fit my big camera and a water bottle in it.
Inside of bag. You can see the zipper pocket, magnetic snap, and d-ring (which will hold my keys once I make a keychain for my keys. The little plastic vial in the middle is the extracted DNA from wheat germ. I should probably toss it, but the kids were so proud.
