What makes a handbag ??


I have been having fun thinking out of the bag on how to make handbag's out of things I would not normally use. I found (at the same store were I got the pillow) this $4.00 bag that is suppose to hold silverware. I loved it and thought it would make a fun handbag. Let me tell you, I am a lazy crafter. So everything I added, I did with Fabri-tac glue, no sewing. I LOVE this stuff use it all the time. Everyone should own a bottle !!


I was planning on making a ribbon handle but when I was in Joanne's I saw this bamboo handle that looked perfect. I took some red seam binding. Cut loops, glued them to the back of the purse to hold the handle. Changed out button. I went thru my stash of odds and ends and found this vintage wooden bead lady. (I am going to see if I can recreate her !! ). And wha-la !! a cute one of a kind purse to add to my (HUGE) collection. I need lots of purses though, well that is what I tell David. I change my purse everyday !! So what do you have laying around the house that you could glue ;- O (oh I am sorry "make") into a fabulous summer bag !!!

PS. Still working on changing broadband carrier !! But I am trying to get back to normal. Well normal for me !!

Clarice, I love your purse! Very creative. :)


That is so cute! I'm so inspired!


It is just darling!! You did a wonderful job!


How wonderful to create something so unique! And they will think you paid 10 prices for it too!


You just can't have too many purses! I love what you did, Clarice, very clever.


Isn't that the cutest thing!!! I love it, especially the button & the wooden lady.


HOw clever are you. That bag is absolutely stunning!! The fabric with the red trim, and that cute little button. You'll have to craft more often.


Just adorable Clarice!!!

Oh Clarice, I'm really loving this! It turned out so great and has my favorite vintage look about it. The bamboo handle is the perfect choice and adding that little bead lady makes it whimsical, but not too cute. You are sooooo clever! You've definitely inspired me!
