Context #1 : I recently made a shoulder bag for my momma in the Amy Butler Frenchy pattern, which I love. Well, my oldest sister (we will call her Sis from here on out) liked it and mentioned it to my mother so in turn my mother asked me to make Sis one for birthday, which is coming up in the month of August. I then went out and found the perfect fabric for my Sis's bag and just finished it this weekend. As a reference point, here is my mom's bag. I obviously can't show you my Sis's yet or it would ruin the surprise.
Context #2 : My other sister (we will call her my Seester from here on out) emailed me a few weeks ago and the conversation went like this:
Seester : "If you were going to pick one of your shoulder bags on etsy for me, which one would you pick? Just curious."
Me : "I wouldn't pick any of those for you my seester because none of them look like you. While they look like me, they don't look like you. The only reason I have not made you one yet is because I haven't found a fabric combination that looks like "you", but when I do, I will make you one. And don't try and be sneaky and buy something from my store. You are my seester for crying out loud."
Which, I have since found fabric that I think looks like her, though you can never really be sure about this sister because she is extremely picky. And picky doesn't even begin to explain it.
Fast forward to this morning when I finished Sis's bag and immediately fall in love with it. I should've known better, but I was so eager to share, I texted a picture of it to my Seester.....big mistake. She texts back "I hope that is mine, if it isn't, it shoud be". Uh oh. And here now lies my problem...my Seester has now seen my Sis's bag, but won't see her own until it arrives on her doorstep. What if she is let down? What if she likes my Sis's bag better? Then what? As my 3 year old son would say...."Awwww Nuts".
