Finished and Finished!

Well I finished HP and the Deathly Hallows. It took me longer than expected because a purse insisted I make it so I had to alternate between the book and the purse. I call it my Paper Doll Purse. The dolls are from a stamp of a paper doll. The faces - well - I sketched the face (first face), scanned it, then manipulated it--took each half and made a whole face. Amazing how different they look! This gave me two different faces. I printed them out on white cotton and made them as you would a covered button but used a piece of plastic instead. I dressed the girls in lots of glitter, sequins, and beads all pretty much the same but different. I twisted the cord using 4 different yarns. There is also a chain so I can wear it as a shoulder bag. For the picture, it has the new HP book inside--fit perfectly! Now I just need to add purse charms.

Playful and wonderful, Stephanie!

I was in airports all day that the new Harry Potter came out, and I swear every third person was reading it!
