...make it your ambition to lead a quiet life:
You should mind your own business and work with your hands.
I Thessalonians 4:11 NIV
Here's how I kept my hands busy this week. I wanted a grayish-blue denim shirt, and planned to make one, but miraculously found exactly the shirt last weekend, and only $12. So, I whipped up this little purse using Monica's pattern. She writes such clear instructions with nice pictures to follow. The gray is the back of some blue denim, my favorite summery madras plaid with red straps to tie it all together. You can see where I didn't catch the madras in the seam on the right, but since it's just for me, who cares?
I'm linking this up to the Weekend Show-off party at Ladybird Lane. Go see what everybody else made this week!
