Purse from Placemat

Isn't this great? I made this little handbag 8 1/2" by 11" by 1 3/4 at base, from a place mat that is reversible!  The straps and flowered details are made from fabric ribbon doubled.  The flowers are then embellished with bead and pearl.  I was so pleased with the way this came out and everyone loves it!  If you would like to purchase this bag, please go to my Etsy shop listed in the sidebar of this blog.

Keep your eye out for colorful placemats that would be perfect for this project! PIER 1 stores are a good place to look.  This one that I used was from K-Mart.  I have two others that I am going to make in darker colors and will post them when I get them done.  I am still working on the Pom-Pom scarf and will post that soon, too!

Keep on Kraftin'!!

My heart to yours...
