Catching up - Part I: Gourd Purse!

Front view
Hubby got me a new computer back in June, but I haven't been using it as much as I should.  Time to catch up on posting projects I've been working on.  Probably the biggest and coolest thing I've done was take a gourd purse class from Gloria Crane.  We transformed plain ol' canteen gourds into beautiful (and functional) purses, complete with pretty lining.  Here's some pictures of mine:

I lined the inside and padded it a bit

I love my gourd purse!
