Crazy Quilt Purse...

My youngest daughter asked me one day if I would make her a purse that looked like a crazy quilt. I was working on a crazy quilt at the time and told her I would try. She wanted it to be an over-the-shoulder bag with a flap. Here is the end result.
 It was a lot of  fun choosing just the right embellishments to fit her personality.
Her name begins with a D
and they say every crazy quilt needs a spider for luck
and of course, a fan and some grapes.
My personal favorite-two little bees buzzing around
near a nest of blue eggs.
A row of birdhouses perched on a fence.
I lined it with a soft, blue cotton calico. Her birthday is in October, so I gave her a little row of jack-o-lanterns in the bottom corner.
 I am thinking of starting another one soon. I think I'll make the next one smaller and come up with a different style. I'm thinking no flap.

Have a great Thursday!!!
