Here is my 'donation' for next year's Beading for a Cure auction.
A sweet little evening bag, just big enough for the essentials.I really like it, but it is impossible to photograph, and of course, this year participants have to take their own pictures to submit. Figures I make something that just doesn't photograph well. I do have a light tent and will (eventually) set it up and spend some time getting some good shots, but right now, that's just beyond me. Luckily I have until August!
If you look closely, you will see that the stars are just slightly different. I reversed the colors of the beads. The star on the left has gold around the center pearl and the tips are gold. The star to the right has a purple center and purple tips.Since I didn't really have a full game plan set when I started, I wasn't exactly sure what kind of strap I was going to use or how to attach it.
Luckily the stars aligned (sorry, I couldn't resist) and it all came together without a hitch.
I found these super-strong magnets at the craft store, so I used them under the lining for the closure. So no fumbling with a snap, just press the flap down and it stays closed. I love that.
Don't forget this year's auctions are still in full swing. Please take a moment to pop over to see if anything catches your eye - and bid high for a good cause. The link is right at the top of my sidebar!
A huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone for their concern and prayers for Hannah. You are all wonderful women and your friendship means the world to me!
