Paying It Forward

Today I was completely shocked when Sherry let me know that I won one of her hand crafted ceramic shuttles.  I could not believe my luck and I absolutely can’t wait to receive it!!

That got me thinking that I should pay her generosity forward – sorry I don’t hand craft one of a kind shuttles but I have been told that I make a mean purse!

I made this purse tonight it’s my smaller version of the Lazy Girl Designs Miranda Bag.  I measures approximately 8 1/2″ high, 12″ wide and 3″ deep.  It has wooden handles, magnetic snap closure, 6 interior pockets and firm bottom to prevent sagging.  I’m even going to include a matching key fob.  I made this bag for me, but I have enough fabric and materials to make another one just like it.


Here is what the inside looks like:


If you’d like this bag (or even pick your own fabrics if you don’t like these – I have a fairly large selection of fabrics at home – what quilter doesn’t) just post a comment on this post and I’ll draw the lucky winner next Friday (1/23).

And thank you again Sherry – I can’t wait to get my new shuttle!

    Christine – that is a very cute purse, I would be honored to win it! I’m so used to thinking of you as OwenJulesMom, seeing Christine threw me a little!

    Still have the Miranda pattern, have the revisions to make it smaller. Still haven’t had time to try it! I will though. You’ve done an excellent job with yours!

    Christine, congratulations on winning Sherry’s shuttle. She is so talented, they are beautiful! Almost too pretty to use. :)

    Adorable purse too, pretty colors. A pro at tatting as well. I don’t know how you get them done so fast…. It’s like the tortoise and the hare, I am the tortoise. LOL

    It is a lovely purse- the right size, too, for carrying balls of thread for tatting and a new shuttle.
    I esp. like the pockets along the sides- good idea.
    I enjoy seeing the work of your hands.

    I would love it, too.

  12. Congrats on winning one of Sherry’s lovely shuttles. She does beautiful work!

    Congatulations on being the receiver of Sherry shuttle giveaway! Please let us know if yours have that little musical tinkling sound when the thread passes through the tips, it’s pretty neat. I would love to be entered in your giveaway, (although after Sherry’s shuttle and your purse I’d be afraid to win because I’d want to do a pay it forward also and I couldn’t do anything neat enough to compare with you ladies’ talents)

    Hi Christine,
    I know how wonderful your purses are!! I’ve had so many complements. I’ve put it away until spring, however. What a fun blog! I’m so amazed by your tatting. Is there anything you can’t master in a short amount of time?!!!

  15. Your purse is beautiful, and I would be thrilled if I were to win it! I’ve long admired the Lazy Girl designs.

    Congratulations on winning one of Sherry’s shuttles! I think they’re fabulous, and I enjoy tatting with mine.
