Twilight.......The Purse!

I have a friend named Shasta. Was she named after the Soda???
I say Nay Nay!!!
She was named after the world famous Liger, Shasta.
She told me this story,...but she didn't seem very happy about it!
I digress.

Shasta is the friend that owns the fabric store. She is also a huge fan of the Twilight series of books.
To celebrate the release of the 4th book she is hosting a party Friday night. This will not be an average party....nothing Shasta does is average....It will be over the top!
She is hoping to have door prizes for everyone there. I know that she has made several quilts, she has someone making bracelets, purses, and other cool things.
She sent me home from her shop, on Tuesday, with about 8 bolts of black, white, and red fabrics. She asked me to make at least 5 purses for the party!
This is what I have so far (Thursday night):

This first purse is my own pattern. She has some great buttons! I couldn't resist!

The second purse is J Coroline's Hobo bag. It's the first time I've used the pattern, and I L.O.V.E it!!!

The third one is the Everything Bag. The tutorial is found on Sew Mama Sews blog.
It is a fun, and easy bag to make.
The big square button is my fave.
Now back to sewing!!! At least 2 more to get done before the party!!!

That is freakin' awesome she is named after the Liger!! I thought for sure it was the soda pop!

As for your purses: HOLY COW lady, you are so creative!! And those buttons are super cute. Between you and Angel your stuff will be the hit of the party!

It's a good thing this party is late, I think some of the prizes are going to be very freshly finished! I hope my mom wins one of your bags!

I had a wax Shasta too!! My sisters and I tried to eat it thinking it would be like the wax lips at Halloween time. It wasn't.
