What materials did you use? This soft and supple purse is fashioned from fabric I created by manipulating 5 layers earth-toned rayon upcycled from thrift store finds, lined with upcycled black silk. The shoulder strap and decorative bead/tassel embellishment were purchased new. The top opening has a hidden closure system (made from a carpenters measuring tape!) that softly snaps shut. Inside is about 8.5 by 8.5 and the outside finished size is about 9 by 9. Truly one of a kind!

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I finished this! :) So many of my projects become "UFOs" and I also love the way this turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try to make it perfect...the beauty is in the irregularities!
