I finally solved a bit of a challenge I made for myself some time ago. I love making these purses. Our own KS Nurse sent me an outline and I've customized it a bit to suit my tastes. I knew I wanted to send a pink purse card to Finley. Thing is, I also wanted to send a small gift with it. Because I make a lot of these, I buy lots of feathers and bling to go on the front. I didn't have anything to match the purse so I ran to Hobby Lobby. Lo and behold, I found THIS and guess what....it's a hair clip! So, I glued a piece of pink ribbon to the front and clipped the bow to it. On the inside, I let Her Royal Highness know her kingdom misses her dressed in pink and riding her pink horse around to say Hi to all of us and that we would keep the castle clean. I also told her the bow could only be worn by a real princess. You can TELL I'm mom to four boys, huh? I hope there's a granddaughter in my future!!

How sweet to be able to use the feathers on her hair! Beautiful dainty little girl purse! She will love this one for sure! Oh, and I have 3 adult sons and 2 grandsons. Still waiting for the little girls to happen one day.......

Roberta, I will do nothing short of taking a whip to my boys to get a granddaughter. I've had enough of bugs, body functions and strange smells to last a lifetime!!! LOL LOVE my boys...actually fine with not having had a daughter because a granddaughter will be SO much more fun!!!
