This is my first pop tabs purse.
Many years back (when I was in grade school) my father made belts from pop tabs.
I had forgotten all about pop tabs until recently when the idea of a pop tab purse started forming in my mind. I am an avid collector of purses and thought it would make a great addition to my others. Turns out dad had been saving tabs all these years!!
First I had to locate enough ribbon for what I had in mind. I settled on two shades of grey (pewter and silver) and alternated them in the weave.
Several years back I had made and embroidered a velvet table runner. I was not pleased with the hem and shoved it away with my fabric scraps. It worked prfectly for the lining of the bag. I am terrible with lining things but I think it turned out great.
