Here is a handbag and matching wallet I made my wife. She has been begging for this for a long time, so I hope that she is pleased with the outcome!
I used Kimberbell Kids personalized name pillow pattern to make these personalized pillows for my Mother in Law and Mom. I also made one for my niece.

This is a photo of us while we were dating.
Don't you just love the 80's glasses?
How big could they be?
So on this day, I toast my wife, and look forward to the next 24 years!

When we visit family and friends and bring their gifts, they can't wait to see what their wrap will look like this year. (They have come to expect it from us!)
Most of the time they say it is too pretty to open. We have always wrapped up our gifts that we give others a little bit special. Call it OCD, but I figure presentation is important too.
Grasp it in the middle and fold it in half.
This is what you should have!
Now carefully cut the folded ribbon in the middle like this.
Take care not to meet at the middle.
Now carefully tie the ribbon cluster that you just cut onto the package.
This is what your finished bow will look like! Now just add a gift tag, and get ready for the complements you receive as you give your gift!
On a side note, we are all Ohio State fans here!
I just made this hair bow for my daughter. I saw one like it at a boutique for around $12.00.
I had all the supplies on hand, so it didn't cost me a thing.
I used E6000 glue to attach the beads, the glue oozed out a little, but I wanted to make sure that they would stay.
I don't think you will notice it when it is worn.
