This is a purse I made out of a fish patterned handkerchief that I bought at the Marukai 98 cent store.  They have lots of really cute little pieces of Japanese fabrics that are in the form of dish towels or hankerchiefs or placemats.  I bought way too many different things from there but this is the first thing I've actually used the fabric for.  After I made it I went back to buy up all the fish fabric but there were only three hankerchiefs left.  

This is the inside.  I used just some random blue fabric as the lining.

This is an attempted action shot.

You're right it is shaped like a fish bowl.  I didn't intend that and hadn't noticed before.  Maybe if I make another one I'll try to accentuate the fish bowllyness.
