I found a vintage pillow case with a lovely flowered print at the GoodWill one day, and decided to turn it into a purse.

Strangely, I would never carry a purse like this, and yet I think it's SO cute!

I also put my new embroidery skills to good use and hand embroidered the outer pocket.

My boyfriend and I joked with my teenage daughter that if she was bad, we'd make her carry this purse around with her to school all week! hehehe!  She didn't like that.

It's so cute and springy! Great work!!

I wouldn't carry a purse like that around either, because I don't like short "handles" (right word?) on purses.

Wow that is uber Spring!  I really love that floral fabric, great find!

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

Thank you so much for your compliments everyone Smiley

I made it just before Easter and it's definitely very Easter-y!
