Another Placemat Purse

I got to stop by a garage sale this morning. I had recently read this article on WikiHow on how to make a purse out of denim shorts or a skirt. So imagine my excitement when I found THIS skirt.
Then I found these handles and this placemat and the star. All of this cost me a grand total of $4. Which was less than the $5 handles cost at Wal-Mart. I am very happy.
Then I went to JoAnn’s and got the black trim with the gold coins for the denim skirt/purse, and the D rings, for when I when I make another placemat purse.

I did the handles differently this time. Thanks to Scribbit’s tutorial, I used the ribbon this time. I think it makes it look better, and I think it will be sturdier in the long run. I also added a button for a closure. πŸ™‚ It’s a nice button, isn’t it? Sorry for the blurriness of this picture. But I made pockets again. The fabric is a real soft velvety feeling fabric, but it has a lot of stretch to it. And here’s the finished product! πŸ˜€ I think it looks absolutely fabulous.

And that’s my creativity for today. I am excited that I got to finish this today. Gracie took a really long nap today. Otherwise, I would have taken forever. I plan on making the denim skirt tonight when everyone else goes to bed. Because right now, I need to go make supper and feed two grumpy girls.

Hugs, Melinda
