On our recent cruise we made a stop in Jamaica and I purchased, what I call, a "hippie" bag. It's a roomy, quilted over-the-shoulder purse and is very comfortable to wear. I have been wearing it all week, whether it has matched my outfit or not. That's not like me, but I like it that much!
Each day I have looked at it with that
"I could so make this" spirit.
So this afternoon I closed myself up in my sewing room and came up with this.
The red cotton fabric has tiny little mirrors on it. It is from a blouse that was made in India. I bought it years ago for the sole purpose of remaking it into something else.
I lined the inside of the purse with some fabric that has lobsters and crabs all over it. It came from a large pair of shorts (no,I did not ever wear them). They also were bought just for the fabric.
I accented the bag with a mother-of-pearl button closure.
I just love how it turned out!
