This is my first bag challenge entry, and my third attept at a bag, so I'm a little nervous. But I saw the theme for the challlenge and thought, "hey, I can do this!" then i had to find the right item. It was during an aisle by aisle search of the third $2 shop of the day that I found a packet of plastic Pirate coins in the party section and the idea just took hold...

The Pirate Treasure Purse!



It's small, it basically just fits my phone, ID, Keys and lipgloss. The coins completely make up the structure of the bag, the lining is just there so my things don't fall out. The coins are joined with wire in jewel-like colours to fit with the treasure theme. I made all the holes in true craftster style, by melting them in with a hot needle (beware of fumes if you're doing alot). The handle is made with plastic "Pirate-y" beads on a length of copper wire.

I hope you guys like it!

Thanks all for the compliments
