Yipee! Christmas in April
That’s how I felt recently when I picked up my latest needlepoint handbag. I have a unique love for all things crafted and have bought many a finished needlepoint handbag on eBay and ETSY. Then I got an urge. I had to make one of my own. I did a random search on eBay for handbag canvases.
I could stitch it. Just fill in the background. And I love red. I loved red poinsettias. And I’d never made a Christmas bag before—SOLD
I took my finished canvas to my local shop to be made into a bag. I knew what size tote and handle length I wanted. The shop ladies are terrific in helping, too.
So what do you think? Like the size? The color? Would you have picked a different background color? Would you make a handbag just for Christmas?
