I sent out an FB request to my friends for materials with which to craft.
One person gave me something.
One! (thank you RP!)
And with a silent auction happening at work I was asked by the same person if I would make something for people to bid on.
Of course I can!
Now she asked for something specific but without a time frame there is only so much I can do. So I started with this and figure if I have another few days I can make a bag/purse like she requested.
This skirt was in the bag of clothes she gave me and when I saw it I immediately thought pillow.
So that’s what I made….
What do you think? Would you bid on this?
It’s like the tree has given us a gift of purse! But really I just forgot to take a picture of my finished project as usual so I tossed it up there on a whim. I probably should have at least picked a limb low enough to get the details on the bag!
I made this for my SIL. She had seen the one I made for myself ages ago and asked for one. She provided the pants, yes, pants, I did the rest.
This is a purse made from a pair of cords. She provided a black pair and I dug through my stash and found a fun butterfly patterned piece big enough for the lining. I lined the inside of the handles with the same material and decided at the last minute to make a belt for it as well. The waist size of the pants determines the size of the bag so this wasn’t a large one, about a 6 maybe. I didn’t put any interior pockets but could have as there ended up being more room than I anticipated. It is meant to be a forearm bag only because of the short handles.
I handed it off to many thank you’s, great job’s and wow you should make these for money! but honestly I prefer blankets.
And now I need to get back to the blanket I have been procrastinating over because as usual I am running short on time!
