I made a bag and wallet for one of my friends whose birthday is today - and yes, I realize that making it on the day she should receive it is a bit late. She'll get it about a week late by the time it gets to Germany, so for me that is about on par! Anyway, I think it turned out really nice. (Even though from the angle of the picture, it doesn't look like the wallet will fit in the purse, it fits nicely.)
I used the free tutorial for the Lindie bag from CraftApple. I may have gotten a little bit corny because I embroidered on the inside of the wallet "You are loved!", but I wanted to add a personal touch. Here's how it looks:
I think she'll like it though, which I guess is the point! Okay, I should go make dinner now!
