Purse Party!

A few days ago, my sister and her beau came over for a little sewing party to whip up some Christmas gifts. All we needed was some fabric scraps and a zipper for each purse and away we went. We each made a little zipper pouch to hold whatever we deem in need of holding. I think I'll use mine for loose change so that it doesn't pile up in a mess in my purse as per usual. Chris is giving his to his sister-in-law, upon which receiving I'm sure she'll be thrilled! Hauna gave hers to her friend Alli.

Among other conversation, we relived memories from days of old in Home Ec class where we made pot-holders, boxers, and spandex shorts of all things. My two students were quick learners and very proud of their finished products. Congratulations to Chris for making his first sewn creation ever. Congratulations to Hauna for snatching up a real man who can also sew...bonus!

I was wondering if you could tell me what fabric is the pink little trees. I've been trying to find out for a while now.
Thanks,
Adina

The pink floral fabric is called "Circles and Flowers" (fuchsia) from Erin McMorris's Park Slope collection (Free Spirit Fabrics). Isn't it a fun print?! Here's a link to the Free Spirit page about it: http://www.freespiritfabric.com/core-pages/gallery.php?gal_id=144

And I could have been the lucky maker of one of these fine purses at Thanksgiving!! Oh well, do you take rain-checks on sewing projects?? Maybe we could have a sewing circle in May when the garage is being built?!
