Today I’d like to welcome Allison from little lovelies. I pretty much love everything she puts on her blog! She has a fabulous style and the colors and presentation are always beautiful! And I’m thrilled she agreed to participate and I think you’ll love what she’s sharing with us today!
My name is Allison and I blog at little lovelies.
I've been married for almost 7 years to Anderson and we have an almost 3 year old son, Sawyer. I am an
accountant by day, blogger by night. My blog is pretty much a place for all of my creative endeavors – embroidery and cross stitch are a couple of my favorites, I have a thing for bookmarks, I sometimes make cards, and I even throw in cute pictures of my kid as a bonus.
When Christie asked me to be a part of purse week, my initial reaction was, of course, yes! Purse week
is one of the first blogging "events" that I followed along with when I started reading blogs so it's pretty cool to be asked to be a guest poster. Excitement faded as I reminded myself that I am really lacking in the sewing ability department. I am good at pretending that I know what I am doing, pinning sewing projects, buying fabric, and I am even pretty darn good at threading my machine, but when it comes down to
actually making a finished project I'm a dud. Still wanting to be a part of this fun week, I asked Christie how she would feel about me making something "purse related but not a purse" for all of the other sewing-challenged folks like me. She's nice and said yes, so I knew I had to come up with something fun and something that would keep up with the talent of all the fantastic sewers out there.
I came up with a little something to dress up your purse that involves no sewing and takes probably less than a half hour to make. If you’re excited just reading that sentence, you are my kind of person.
But I couldn’t stop there. Oh no. Must make multiples of everything.
The yellow tassel is my favorite. I have been wearing it clipped to my purse for the past couple of days and I love it. It’s swingy and fun and adds a nice pop of color to my neutral, definitely-not-sewn-by-me purses.

I seriously love it! And it’s perfect for when you want a fun project but don’t have time to make a whole purse. Thank you, thank you, Allison!
