Today I met with old friends at one of their houses. We made blue jean purses of all things. It was fun, though, and we had a lot of laughs. Someone else brought all the supplies and it only cost two dollars a piece to make them. I didn't finish mine so I finished it when I got home. I still had to put some decorations on it and put on the straps. As it turned out I have the straps on wrong I think so I have to take them off and put them on the right way. They told me to put some Oops on and the glue would disolve. So I'll try that tomorrow and then get them on right. Anyway this is the one I made.

It's quite easy even for me to make them. They sell for $40 to $50 dollars to strangers or $15.00 to friends. It requires a very small pair of jeans, 18 months to size 10. One yard of fabric for the lining, a sheet of foam to insulate, glue and glue gun, and any decorations you want to put on. Oh, and a friend to help you when you get stuck LOL. Also a magnetic snap. It was an enjoyable time.

Here is the group I got to play with today...notice how conveniently everyone has their head turned away.

How beautiful is the road to a friends house...

Goodnight and have a pleasant tomorrow.

It turned out nice and look at all those pockets where you can put stuff. They sure are a shy bunch tho.
