Yes, this is the long-awaited post about that hand-made purse I was talking about! *Squeals in delight*. I’m so excited.
All the credit goes to my dear mother who is so dedicated and patient and wonderful! She was the one who did all the sewing. She even had to undo my previous hand-sewn parts (embarrassing I know) and do it over again.
You’ll never guess what this purse was made of!
A skirt. A mini skirt in fact. The skirt was in a bag of clothing we were given to rummage through. Obviously you would NOT see me ever wearing such a thing, but I loved the material so much I kept it and my mom turned it into this purse:
I got a deep blue satin ribbon to put around it for extra flair,
and two rings for the handle
Already accessorized! Don’t you just love the blue?
One last picture in this post I promise! Of course the purse still needs a few finishing touches, such as a zipper and maybe a support on the bottom so it’ll be a bit more stiff. But the major work is done!
Again I’m thankful for my mother who undertook this project although she has many duties of her own to take care of! And sorry for all the bragging about this purse….but I thought you might like to see how cute it looks.
