A lady in New Zealand saw my skull purse on one of the forums I posted it to. She asked if I make purses to sell and I told her yes, then messaged her since you can't sell on that site. She then somehow found another posting about it and proceeded to order some of the skull fabric to be shipped to her in New Zealand.

Here is the kicker.....she either hurt her shoulder / had shoulder surgery / or both and can't sew anymore, but she really wants that purse. It was then that she told me she was going to send me the fabric to make her a purse! The part that kills me is she is paying shipping to New Zealand from fabric.com, then postage to mail it to me, then the postage for me to mail her purse to her when it's done. By the time all is said and done, it's going to be an expensive purse!!!

I just sit here in amazement.....

Did I mention shipping the purse to New Zealand will be $62?!?!?!?

Wow that must be a helluva purse if she's going to all that trouble to get it OR else your sewing skills are exceptionally worthy. You must feel pretty special!!

Cost is nothing when you get a purse made by the best!
She may have gone the long way around but I'm sure she
will be thrilled with your work.

Well you could make it already and when you get the fabric send off the bag. She will be blown away how fast you work!

Oh gee, if you have the fabric already could you just tell her no need to ship it to save her some $$$?

I have. I also made sure she knew I was in the USA and she said she knew that but it's a Christmas present to herself and she doesn't care what it costs!!!

You already have the very same fabric, but she insists it be the fabric she bought?

Shame she didn't order the fabric to you directly, maybe she didn't dare wait for fear the fabric would be gone? She must really love how it turned out. Awesome how much she loved your work. :)

What an awesome bag....while I am not a fan of "skulls" this bag is absolutely amazing, you did a great job ! How many purses have you made in the past ? Do you make the NCW's too ?
