I was checking PURSES,BAGS,AND WALLETS because I felt the need to explore Craftster more.  I should have done so earlier, because the posts here are amazing!  All the accessories are so cute that they made me want to create something for this part of the forum too.  I was in one of those impatient and illogical mood, so I 100% winged it without even bother thinking things through or making a pattern. Tongue  [I did read through laurasaurus's tutorials during my exploration, which helps a whole lot! Thanx laurasaurus!]  So here is the finished product.  I am not too thrilled, but maybe it is my weird mood.

P.S. at this point, neither the flowers nor the straps are sewn on, just placed.  I'm going to go ahead and blame the mood one more time Grin.

I think that looks really good, especially for just winging it without a pattern! Good job!

Wow! Now that's an inspiring design! I love the juxtaposition between the rough croco-texture of the purse and the delicateness of the kanzashi flowers - the colour scheme totally jives together too.
