    I think I'd have to frame them somehow. Way to nice to carry as a purse! Lol! Amazing job.

    Wow, those are amazing! Your handwork embroidery is so lovely and I am completely blown away at how you replicated and I daresay improved on, the graphic from the plastic bag. Positively drool worthy!

    Gorgeous! I especially love the bag with the French vibe, but both are works of art.

    You are the Master. I looked and looked but I couldn't see a woman kissing a dog. Where is it? OK I went back and saw it on the back of the purse. These are wonderful. Your friend is sure to be pleased. BrendaK
