Faux Chenille Shoulder Bag

Project Description

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!

What you will need

  • 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!
