Katie's Lil Purse

I made a purse for my friend Katie's birthday. Maybe you think it's tacky to have that plaid strap on the reverse of the floral side of the purse. My plan was that it not be seen when she's using that side. But uh... here you go! It's super simple design. Made smaller than I intended again. I thought she'd like both of these fabric designs and I didn't think it wasn't important that they be related in any way since they won't be showing at the same time.

I am curious to know if any of you find it bothersome when my reversible purses' reverse-side fabrics aren't related to each other. In my mind it's a GOOD thing they're not related so it's like having 2 totally different purses, and assuming that no one's going to look at the inside of your purse and judge you for clashing. I just know it drives my sister a little crazy that I make things like this. So- opinions: go.

Dog Plate #2

I did another dog plate- and this time got paid! haha. I never got to see the plate finished- my coworker took a picture of it with her phone when she opened the kiln, and then my friend I did it for came and picked it up that day (for her mom's birthday. Deadlines deadlines!). So, sorry (to you and me both!) that I don't have a better (and straight-on) picture of it- it's just that phone pic.
This one took me quite a bit longer. There was more pressure- maybe that's why. The other one took maybe an hour and this one probably took 5.
