Default The flamingo tote for my sister...

I dearly love my big sister and I wanted to make her something to remind her of our long summer days in florida when we were just kids. This turned out to be a long two days work for me, but, I think I got it right. She loved it and that is what I was going for. LOL... I gave it to her today along with a beautiful moulded silver pen that has dogs all over it. (She loves animals, especially dogs and is an advocate.)

Well, here it is I hope you like it too. I flipped the zipper to make it easier for her to open. She is a lefty and always complains that things are made for right-handers.

It's a beautiful bag and how sweet that you made the zipper for a "lefty"! My DH always complains about the same thing. Great job!

When I saw "flamingo" I thought I'd be needing blinders and shades, but this is very tasteful and your sister will be proud to carry it. Very attractive!
