Etsy and Earth Day 2010

I finished my first purse for my etsy! It's only the second thing I've ever made on my sewing machine!! So, here it is!

Here's a pic in know, you get home, hang your purse on the back of the chair, and pour yourself a captain and diet..

I wanted to take a pic with a size reference, so I stuck my checkbook in the pick. The little tool on the right is a seam ripper.

A huge thanks to Ronnie for generously donating his gently used tees for the greater cause... which is me making money.
So, on a related note...I want to get my stock up BECAUSE, April 22 is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. So, the entire month of April, anything that I have for sale in my shop that is either made from recycled materials or meant to replace an item that would otherwise be thrown out (i.e. coffee cup cozies) will have a portion of the proceeds donated to a environmental group. Now, I haven't decided which group yet, so suggestions are very welcome. I was thinking either the world wildlife foundation, or maybe even my local recycling center.

WWF is a brilliant charity. Jay and I gave money to them for about a year but then we decided that we couldn't afford it anymore. Instead of calling and nagging to give them more money, they thanked us for giving what we could.
I love your shirt/purse! I can't wait to see more! Get sewing! ;)
