What I did this weekend...

I had an Etsy order that I shipped before Christmas and it never arrived. The buyer was soooo awesome and was very very very patient with Canada Post. Eventually it became obvious that the order wasn't going to arrive, so as promised I had to get to work to duplicate the wristlet that she ordered. I then realized that I had run out of one of the fabrics that the original wristlet was made with. A quick run over the border to Jo-Ann's (thanks for coming with me Joe!) quickly fixed that. Then the buyer decided she wanted to upgrade to a purse instead of the wristlet, no problem!

So....I spent the better part of yesterday making these:





I love both the zippered pouches. I had originally thought that they would go into my Etsy shop, but I'm going to re-think that decision. I think I need to keep one of them for me!!

Hi Karyn!!
Love the purse! Thanks for being so awesome!! I love the rectangular pouch too! If i didn't just blow $256 AMERICAN on vintage buttons (709 buttons!! GLASS!! VINTAGE!! BEAUTIFUL!!) i'd buy that one too!! Lol! Can't wait to RECEIVE the purse! Unless little Miss.Postal Lady thinks she wants a purse to match 'her' wristlet... grrrr.

Thanks again,
Leigh-Ann

That's terrible about having your package lost thru Canada Post. How did you send it? Thank goodness your buyer was so understanding.
