I added an applique butterfly because my sister-in-law loves butterflies. I found the pattern for the applique over at Nutmeg Designs.
I messed up the zipper a little. I lost my zipper foot and only had invisiable zippers so I couldn't get close enough to give it a clean stitch. It was just for fun anyway and my sis didn't seem to mind. I also used fusiable fleese instead of interfacing which gave it a softer look. The fabric is a cordoroay and I'm not sure who makes it. The straps are a rope trim from Joanne's.
It's so nice to be able to enjoy the talents of other women! Thanks ladies for helping me create a great and quick gift for someone I love!
