My first bag

I've had my eye on making this Buttercup Bag for a while, so when my friend's birthday came around I knew exactly what to make her! I encouraged her to overlook any imperfections since it was my first time making a bag, but that showed it was made with love, right?!

Her response? "JEN! I LOOOOVE the purse!! :) It's so adorable and I will DEFINITELY use it!! Thank you sooooo much!! And I'm not sure what "imperfections" I was supposed to notice, but I didn't notice a THING wrong with it! I'm so honored I get to be the first person with one of your creations o' awesomeness! :)"

You think she liked it?! :)
