I made this purse a while ago, and its been my pride and joy ever since. The inside of it isn't really all that great to look at, a bit of a mess in there, but other than that it's fantastic.
I made it using images from a bunch of ballet magazines I had lying around, and some left over fabric, and some packing tape. I didn't do any sewing which is why it looks so messy inside, but it's a very strong purse. I can put all my regular purse necessities in it, plus at least 2 novels and it holds up fine.
Side number one.
Side number two.
As far as I remember it took me about 4 hours to make, from fetching all the materials to filling it with stuff, and I went shopping with it on my arm that night.
