Quick Birthday Gift

Don't you hate it when you discover the birthday of someone you have become good friends with is tomorrow?!

That happened to me last week, so thank goodness for frame purses.


I was able to get this made in an hour; and it went down a treat at the school gate.

I know I am sometimes a crap forgetful friend, but other times at least I can make it look like I am not ;)

  2. It is lovely! You got the pattern really well centered as well. I have two purse frames and the glue waiting for the courage to try making one...my sister wants a new make-up case for her b-day, no idea if I'll manage to make one though!

  10. Lucky, lucky friend. I have a sweet friend that made me a lovely frame purse as an unexpected but much loved birthday gift as well. I bet your friend is thrilled with this beautiful blue purse. I still have yet to try one, not sure where the block is but one day I'll have to do something with the 3 frames I have sitting in waiting!
