My first Amy and Joel pairing resulted in a Frenchy handbag for my sister at Christmas. It was hard to give this one up. Hearing her exclamation of delight on Christmas morning was worth it though. Then you know you've really made an impression with the next question. "Do you think you could make me a lunch bag too?" I love a design challenge.
Then in January it was the Frenchy shoulder bag made at my mom's request. It seems mom was showing off some of my work one day on flickr and her friend fell for my Frenchy shoulder bag. Flattered, of course, I agreed to whip one up for mom to give her friend on an upcoming birthday. In a word her friend LOVED the bag. In fact, my mom is beginning to regret giving it to her. Everyday she gushes over the perfect, professional stitching. This causes my heart to do little flip-flops being the perfectionist crafter I am.
I think it would be hard to disagree that Amy and Joel aren't perfect partners. Although I'm biased so feel free to disagree....quietly...in your head.
