Okay, I found this cute little straw purse (natural straw with dark teal straw) at Jo-Anns in the Easter clearance for 90% off.  It was fabric lined (with even a tiny pocket) in teal already, so for $1, I had to buy it to save and 'recycle' it.....the only problem was the Easter Egg woven onto the side of it.

I took some domino beads, let my daughter pick out some other buttons and beads, and hand sewed them on.  Voila!  A cute little purse that can be carried all season!  I made her a domino necklace to match too.

The only problem is, I want to take the purse for myself!  My 3-year old is not in agreeance, of course!


See, she digs it too!

This is my first post, I totally just discovered Craftster and am in awe of all you guys!  Where have you been all my life?  In my circle of girlfriends, I am known as the crafty one, so I am honored to have a new gang to rattle around ideas with!

What do you think of the purse?

Thanks so much!  My mom is the diva seamstress/costumer/quilter and so I tend to shy away from anything that involves a needle, I usually just draw up the plans and ship it off for her to sew! 

I liked the domino beads especially, since they are the same straw color as the main part of the bag.  Here is another pic (flash on) so you can see the teal part....my camera is freaky (much like other people who have posted) so the first pics aren't true of the color.

You can't see the bead design as well, but you can see the color. 

Yes, my daughter is a cheese-ball!

Glad you like it!
