Yesterday I was shopping at Target for after Christmas deals and I bought some little battery powered Christmas lights... and I thought it'd be cool to make a light-up purse... Anyone ever try such a thing?

There are actually specially designed lights that you can buy to go into your purses and they light up when you open the purse and then turn off when the purse is closed. They are shown on my website if you would like to see what they look like.

I'd personally rather have them on the inside so I could see, but making little eyelet holes (sewn) and poking them through if you had a starry fabric might be cute. Or if you were to make a one strap back pack ( I call them Bike Messenger Bags) you could add the lights in a nice formal stripe down the middle so that you can be seen at night by cars. Maybe around the top edge of a bag then over the lights you can add some eyelash yarn or maribou (or whatever its called) so that the lights can shine through the fuzzy.
