I finished this for my BFF for this coming Christmas. I had such a great time making it. The purse pattern is Simplicity 1519, and the Snowflake with "S" is a freebie from Cute Embroidery. The Snowman is from Five Star Fonts. The Candy Cane "S" by the Santa is from Sick designs, don't know where the "Santa's Shopper" design came from, but I added the knockdown stitching to it. And the little Santa came from a friend. Most importantly, the "Crazy Patch" quilting designs came from Kreative Kiwi. I love Heather's designs! Thanks for looking

Can I be your BFF, too?

Thank you so much! So was it because I put their name in my narrative, or are they using it to advertise. That's awesome!

Thank you! Not too much work. The embroidery machine did most of it, the quilting I mean.

Thank you so much! The biggest amount of work for me was actually making the purse and adjusting the quilting panels to fit the purse pattern. I had to take a lot of the padding away from the bottom corners where the darts are. But..it was truly a work of love for my friend!
