After weeks of research here on Craftster, I finally took the plunge, cut up an old blazer & made this purse.
The purse is made from an old wool blazer that I loved but was terribly out of style. The lining of the purse is the lining of the blazer. It has a band of grosgrain ribbon around it that I have since added a grosgrain bow to. The ribbon doesn't exactly line up at all four edges, but I'm pleased anyway. The strap is repurposed from another purse. The corners were a little tricky, but the fabric is thick enough to be very forgiving.
Thanks for looking!
