I have one quick "Craft and Clutter" sale to do before we leave for the beach. It seemed as though people are most interested in my small purses lately so I decided to make a few by Saturday. I have quite an assortment already, with more to come. I won't be listing these on Etsy, but if you see something you like, please leave me a message here. I'll be listing more of what's left after vacation.
The fabric shoulder bag is actually a reconstructed dress that already had fringe on the bottom. I sewed it together and was able to save the fringe.
I also came across a huge spool of tiny rickrack. It is white with stains. I figured I can either unroll it until it's not stained anymore.....or just tea stain the completed project. It is difficult to crochet with, but I love a beautiful challenge. I have a lot of ideas for this find - including this wooden purse blank I've been wanting to do something with.
In the meantime, I need to make myself a summer purse. I get so many compliments on my old brown cotton winter purse that I'm still using. I figured I'd show off something new and pass out some business cards in the meantime. So, I had better get to work!
