FIUM - Miranda Day Bag


FIUM? What is FIUM you ask? Well it's Finish It Up Month.

Although it wasn't on my formal list I had a Miranda Day Bag to finish for my Mom that was given unfinished at Christmas. I spent about 4 hours this afternoon finishing it up. I had to add the flap, the purse feet, plexiglas bottom & swivel hooks. I also made up 2 Wonder Wallets, 2 Zippered pouches and a travel tissue cover.
I also put crystals on the flap because it needed "something." And then while I was at it I put crystals on each of the penguins eyes that were visible while Miranda is cinched by the swivel hooks.
So now I'll have to go and drop it off so that she can fill it up and take it to work tomorrow.

Oh I love it! I need to find some fabrics to make my Miranda and get with it, but I haven't found anything that has caught my eye. I'm sure your mom will love it.

I love the colour of the bag. I've always loved the look and/or colour of denim.

GREAT WORK!!!

That is so cute! Still waiting on my pattern to arrive so that I can make mine. How long does it take you to make one?

I really like it! It looks like the perfect size! And I think the crystals were a perfect addition.

Oh girly, I do LOVE that bag!!! Was it a difficult pattern to make? Can you tell me where I might get this pattern? :D I just might be able to get everything I 'need' in that one. ;D

So today Miranda went to work with me for the first time and she was a big hit. You were right people all ask to see the inside of your purse. I love the way it sparkles and everything has it's own spot and now I know where things are. Thank you, thank you thank you

The bag is beautiful and I love the style of the bag. I hate purses so if I like it, it must be really great! I may have to make one. I've just never made a purse before.

You did a fantastic job and the crystals really set it off.

I have to add another I love it to the list. I have yet to make myself any kind of tote Bag or purse. Maybe this will be the year.
