It's finished, but...

Nearly a month ago I showed you a sneak peek of a handbag kit I purchased at my LSS. Today I was determined to finish it (so I can start on something new), but there was a BIG OOPS! Have a look at the picture...



Did you notice that the chipboard book that is supposed to fit inside is the opposite shape of the handbag? Well, I discovered this quite early on and I thought no problem its just got to go in upside down. Dhuh... why didn't I see this sooner. Of course it doesn't fit upside down, because the opening on the top is too small for it to fit into. Maybe because the owner of the store said that the items went together? Well, it's finished now and I have managed to come up with a solution so that it still fits inside the bag. I've taken the handbag apart and put it back together leaving the bottom open. Not quite as it should be, but when it's inside nobody would know. I just need to find a good way to secure it, that the book won't fall out when you pick it up. Phew! On the inside cover (not pictured) it reads: 'I asked your Daddy to give me five words to give to you to take on your journey through life. Always remember to: enjoy, have passion, have self-belief, respect and love, xoxo'.

Here are some more pictures.
