1  Placemat/Napkin Recon in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sara-no-h on: February 26, 2008 05:43:09 PM
This was actually a placemat and a napkin I found for super cheap! The embroidery was already on there, but as soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do with it!
The outside ...

5  From Napkins to a new purse! First Post! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sara-no-h on: February 25, 2008 08:21:00 AM
I found these napkins at a store that was going out of business. I got them for about 20 cents each, and the lining is some old fabric my mom had from years ago.



Hope ya'll like it! Constructive criticism is welcome!
