Purse Project



I've been working my fingers to the bone
trying to get ready for the next Texas show!
Thought I would show you my purse project!
I love small purses,
ones just big enough for the check book and a small wallet
when shopping or selling from my booth!
And I like something that looks vintage!
Hadn't found anything that fit the bill perfectly,
SO..........I decided to make me a purse!
One turned into 10! LOL!
Thats ok!
I'm gonna be selling these lovelies at Marburger!
They all have old crochet sewn on.
And they are washable!
Very important when carrying light colors for a purse!
Tell me what you think!
I haven't decided which one I'm gonna keep for myself yet!


I've linked up with Rebecca of 
R.E.-purposed Life for Sunday Studio!



Keeping the one in the first picture for me!


Sold





Pearl and Crystal pin purse~Sold!




See! It's to hard to decide!


I'm linking up with Kathleen at

Theresa, Theresa, Theresa! These are brilliant and gorgeous!!! I can surely see why you're having a hard time choosing. They are all beautiful but I think my personal favourite is that first one.

Jane @ Jane's Junk and Treasures said...

How cute are they!!!
So cute for summer, long white skirt........going to outdoor antique malls.....I can see it!!!

Micki said...

I love them all! I thnk my favorite one is the one with the coral colored cameo on it. I love cameos of any kind but that one really catches my eye. I wish I lived close enough to be able to visit your booth!

I think you should wear several at a time because they are just too, too gorgeous! That lace! I'm fainting with envy! Hope one of them is offered in your upcoming giveaway!

Sue said...

I absolutely LOVE all of them and if I were you, I would be choosing not one, but at least two!!

Take care, Sue

Oh SO sweet...and I love that you put a zipper on them. Each is prettier than the next!

Girl, these are just beautiful! Can't wait to see them in person. Great idea.

Blue Creek Home said...

I just made my first tote bag. I was going to make my pottery teacher a pillow and she told me she wanted a tote bag. ???
But, I don't make tote bags.
Sure, you do!
Wow,I figured it out and it turned out great.
Believe it or not, she lets us use her vintage linens to roll impressions into our clay. I used some of the better ones for her tote.
I love the little zippers. These things are way classier than my floppy tote bag!

What can anyone think? They're darling!! Will they come with the added jewels? Cuz those really make them. I'd keep the first one *winks* Vanna

awal.ny said...

How beautiful. Very hard to pick a favorite.

Petite Michelle Louise said...

i'd keep ALL of them for myself...one for every day of the week and a few spares! (ya never know!) just sayin...

Debbie P. said...

They are all so darling!! Here's the answer to your question about which one to keep; you keep whichever one doesn't sell. ha! But in your case, you might be out of luck!

The Primitique said...

Very creative! I'd break out the scotch guard and that would cut down on the washing. I like the look a lot! ~Mindy

Jenni at Vintage Songbird said...

They are ALL so pretty!! What a beautiful creation! Thanks for sharing!

Joy Campbell said...

Oh I just love your bags...I am a bag lady too! I am heading to Texas in a few weeks meeting up with friends (my first time) where will your booth be ? I would love to visit. I am making a special bag for myself as well...just in the first stages of it though..can't wait for Roundtop!

I cannot decide wich one you should pick. You are going to have ladies standing at your booth for hours trying to decide! I bet you sell out!

It's more than hard to decide, I would keep them all! I'm getting my sewing machine this week, don't know how to sew but I will learn, and I will make me one just like those, they are adorable, thank you for the inspiration.

For yourself, you need one for monday, one for tuesday...

Tarnished and Tattered said...

T,
I LOVE THESE!! I wish I could come to Marburger & buy one. I'm not sure if I can make it to the show this time. The kids have been so sick & it's put me very behind with class projects, kits etc. There is nothing I'd rather do than come & shop with you, Shelley & Theresa. I know you'll be a huge success like you always are, can't wait to see the pictures of your latest venue.
