Third Life

First it was a sheet. Then it was a curtain. Now, in it’s third life, it’s a purse:

I wear a lot of brown but sometimes I wear black so either color purse is out for me. I hate having to switch purses based on my outfit. Lately I’ve been using a white purse but it gets dirty too quickly. The solution: a bold colored purse. Last fall I looked everywhere for a great deal on a jewel blue purse. This year, I decided to make my own by repurposing some materials I had lying around.

I’m pretty proud of this little bag. I made a liner out of a vintage, flower-pattern sheet with a zipper interior pocket for little hideaways and 3 custom pockets for my cell phone, lipstick and receipts. The flower broach pin/hair clip is from Target.

    SO CUTE! I think you need to start making those with a pocket for a bottle and give them to all your preggy friends as gifts! I’ll gladly test out the prototype for you 🙂

    Well done! It looks great!

    wait, that makes it sound like I’m preggy. I am not. Sorry to disappoint. 😉
