Amy Butler Purse Making Kit

It's Show and Tell Monday - May 12th and it took me almost all day but I have TWO new things to show and tell about today!

First is my new Amy Butler Purse Making Kit! This is a complete kit that includes the Amy Butler purse pattern, Amy Butler fabrics (with extra yardage!!), all interfacings, fleece and even the zipper!! No need to go out to the store to buy anything ... just jump right in to sewing your own new purse! Ok, well, thread - you'll need thread, but if you sew, you already have that!

This is the awesome KIMBERLY BAG Pattern included in the kit!

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!! (LOL) You also get FREE SHIPPING to any US Address!

I know, I'm yelling, but this is exciting stuff.

Oh, and if you are an International customer, YAY, We can ship to you too, we will have to charge for shipping however. You still save though on buying all these materials and the pattern separately.

I'll be putting together more of these kits with many of Amy's great patterns in the days to come. So.... SAVE - TIME - GAS - MONEY and make a beautiful new purse for yourself or a friend - or give the kit as a great gift!

Now... For my next Show and Tell Feature of the Day

I have updated my PURSE`onality Bag's Ordering Form and webpage and it should be as easy as 1.2.3 to order your PURSE`onality Base Bag Package. That's my lovely daughter modeling one of the bags for me. :)

The package includes the base bag, one reversible slipcover, a coordinating fabric tie-on shoulder strap and a sash, tie or scarf for tying on the slipcover (whichever looks best, we'll choose!) For a limited time only I am offering this Base Package for only $99.00!! That's 50% off the regular retail price if each piece was purchased seperately. And once you have your base tote, you can change it's look infinitely with additional slipcovers, handles, ties and accessories (coming very soon!!)

Take advantage of the savings on your base package now. Offer ends June 1st!! I should have the additional slipcovers, straps, sashes and accessories pages completed by the May 19th.

Your work always looks so professional. I've got to make time to do my Kimberly, but the website is starting to click and now lots of ladies are asking for a newsletter. Onward and Upward I hope. Your new bag is so great. Pretty soon all you will have to do is design them, you'll be so busy.
