But pre-celebration there was just one hitch in my giddy-up: I didn't have the perfect party purse.
I utilized some vintage fabric that I have had on hand for a while (two years) and bought a big brown button for the clasp.
Paired with my polka dot dress and some whimsical ribbon that I tied around my waist, I was ready to p-a-r-t-y.
Thanks Bend-Rules-Sewing! (said in cheesy infomercial voice while I give a thumbs up and a wink)
