I went to Wal Mart a week or so ago and went through the remnants pile, and this zebra print and bright pink tulle were just begging to become a purse. The zebra was 88 cents and the tulle was $1.77 and I have loads left of each. I think I may try this one again because I think I finally figured out how to make it more easily. This was the first time I've tried a triangular sided purse, and I didn't have a pattern so I kinda winged it. I had so much trouble getting it to work, and in the end it was so annoyingly simple. Well, here it is- my Zebra purse, with pink tulle and zebra striped ribbon handles.

Sorry for the crappy pic quality, I only have a really old webcam. You can see that I have no idea what I'm doing with the tulle, since it's all puffy on one end and not so much on the other. That stuff is a pain, I had no idea.

here is the side



Hope you like it.

hehe... it's just a square side. I put velcro as a closure, and when you close it, it folds in to form a triangle side Smiley It took me forever to figure that out, lol...
