Shoestring on

What materials did you use? Big Tropical Orange Flowers with Leaves--in a durable Cotton Duck Fabric for Exterior, Cotton Print Lined, 9" Nylon Zipper, Metal O Rings and Wristlet Connector. Handmade Polymer Clay Beads and Glass Beads hand sewn to make fancy zipper pull. Take a mini purse with you on your next outing. All you need is a place for cell phone, car keys, and some folding money--and this little summer purses keeps all those things handy!

I'm having fun using up scrap fabric from other projects to build these wonderful little purses. I love adding the yo-yo fabric flower decorated in shades of orange fancy glass beads--all hand sewn.

Hi Joanly, Construction --The mini purse begins as 9" wide strip of fabric. What have you been up to lately Joanly? I'm a big fan of your work. We should get together at my studio to take classes from each other.
