My niece, Brittany, and I share a birthday on February 24th. Since we were both focussing on her Dad, (my brother-in-law) before he passed away, we didn't do our usual birthday dinner out. I also didn't have time to make her a gift. She told me she would like a purse that had room for her Nook, a baby bottle, and a checkbook.
Again, I had a pattern that I hadn't used yet, and it seemed to be the perfect size.
Not only do Brittany and I share a birthday, but we share a favorite color....purple!
I changed the pattern to include the pockets for the Nook, bottle, and checkbook.
