I REALLY wanted a new purse for the fall - a camel colored, pleather (real leather would be nice) purse. I wanted it to be BIG so I could put all my things for my two babies in it - like these two:
Have a bow on it, so it's nice and girly - like these two:
And be wrinkly like this one:
And only cost me:
Unfortunately for me, (or maybe fortunately) - a purse like that doesn't exist.
So I came up with a creative solution...
Two yards of Camel Pleather from JoAnn's clearance section - $8.00/yard
Two Camel Invisible Zippers - $2.00 each
1.5 Yards Blue Floral Lining (already had)
4 D Rings (already had)
14 hours free time (didn't have, but made the time)
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE (did I mention LOVE) it!
And while it might have cost me more than $10.00 - It's exactly what I wanted, the perfect color, size, has the PERFECT storage capacity, doesn't look TOO handmade and will look great with all the beautiful changing leaves around here.
See, there are advantages to being able to sew.
