I am so happy to announce that I have actually completed a project.
Bea’s “Mary Frances” inspired purse is ready to be unveiled!
But first a little refresher in case you didn’t see the original post.
I bought a couple of Mary Frances purses on our last trip. I was so excited to re-make their acquaintance after a many year separation!
When Bea saw them, her face just lit up and I knew I had to make one for her. I set about finding a base purse to decorate and collected a variety of “bling” to use for the creation.
I brought all the supplies with us on vacation hoping we’d have time to make it, and it actually happened! Woohoo! Follow-through is not one of my strong points, but she was just so excited about this, I knew I HAD to do it.
Glueing the beads on was the most tedious part, but I was able to develop a shortcut that helped a lot, so it didn’t take as many hours as I projected.
And finally this morning it was complete, and I have a VERY happy girl!
Here are some closer photos to show the intricacies…
Bea is thinking her Gaga is the bee’s knees right about now.
And my reward?
Doesn’t get any better than that!
