Vintagey Spring Bag

By  | 

I love bags.
I hate the prices.
I love Spring.
I hate the prices. (of springy things.)

So, I made my own Spring Bag.

I took a iece of fabric and cut it into a shape of sorts…

The fabric is pretty blue. Soft. With a nice pattern. I sewed that up on all 3 sides.


And added a vintage cowboy print for a liner.


And vintage lace to the outside.
I really should have done this BEFORE adding the liner.
Lesson learned.
Typical me.


I used lace to tie on wooden handles I had stolen from a purse otherwise seeing the trash can.


There you have it.

As you can see I sewed on some ribbon and such.
And added a vintage brooch.
No big deal.

What do you think?
Can you sew up 3 sides and tie on a handle?
Then you have a purse!

Til next time…
