A Handbag with Drawers.

 I have made this handbag with drawers for my friend's Granddaughter who will be 11 this month and loves pink!!

I designed this myself last year as I wanted to make my nieces something that they could have in their bedrooms to hold a few bits and pieces in. It sits well on a dressing table as it's not too big, but having 3 drawers, is quite useful. And of course all girls like a handbag !!!

So I decided to make another one in pink and black. I have used decorative buttons for the handles on the drawers and also for the handbag handle. Also I added some "Faux" stitching around the handle tabs. I used "Martha Stewart" punch for the flower decorations on the bag.

 The size of the handbag is approx. 10.5 x 9.5 x 3.5 inches.
A close up of the heart buttons. (just realised whilst doing this that I missed a gem off the top drawer - doh !!!!!) Have put it on now !!
I did a teapot design in a similar way last year for a Xmas present for my mum & Mother-in-law.                                  

 2 teapots with different openings. The red one has a single pull out drawer in the centre and the pink/cream one has a "lid" to enable to put a larger item into.
