Another pressie

This is for a colleague at work Jacci - she is responsible for introducing me to papercrafting 5 years ago and buys me the most lavish gifts. Last year I got a bind it all with lots of accessories! Now I just cannot compete with that so this year have made gifts for her and this is one of them. The bag pattern is by Amy Butler and was the most expensive bit of the bag! The material I bought from the local fent shop for a fiver. I did however spend the best part of Thursday with Midnight crafter making the bag. We both made one and are really pleased with the results - i will def make another. The only thing I dont like is that I have used stiffener between the layers - I bought the best stuff (cost nearly as much as the material)but its a bit too stiff for my liking! Still I hope she likes it - she loves bags and has lots of them. Im safe to post on here as she has no internet access at home so could only look at work and seeing as the CC deem this a social networking site it cannot be accessed!
Have got a busy two weeks up to Christmas at work so I apologize in advance for my absence of blogging - there will of couse be my TT entries but possibly very little else! Have fun folks x Janet
