Whether or not I had the time to make these bags myself, I knew they needed to be made. I love having pals that will take on some sewing for me when I am struck by such a bug. I did take the great personal pleasure however in picking out the materials for her. Then poof. Done. They are a ribbon-y version of the Art Student Tote, and I daresay lurvely.
Here's another had-to-happen-happiness in spite of my current workload. Thank you to Pierrette, my little gif fairy for that one.
