    I made my Secret Pal at church a new purse because hers was falling apart and now everyone wants one. I've had a time keeping my pal out of the loop on all the new bags. She loves hers and brags to everyone about it and they just giggle at her over it (they know what she doesn't).

    Both patterns were free on-line. Mine is called "Buttercup Bag" and the others are called "Maddie".

    Yes, normally. My bag was 2 fq's that I got last week. The fabric for the other bags came from a local thrift store (maybe originally from Mary Jo's) except for the raincoat.

    I got to see Sue (the lady that's been sick and recipient of the yellow w/ flowers) and she had her new purse with her.....She said "I absolutely LOVE it! Thank you for thinking of me." made me cry, but i'm glad she loves it.
