it’s a bag I made when I needed something for a friend’s wedding. Hanging from your wrist, it looks like a bouquet of flowers, and also looks cute sitting on the table!

The base is made from stiffened felt, then covered with “stems” made from green velvet. The top form is felt, also, then I attached silk flowers. Finally, a silk dupioni ribbon “ties” the bunch together. The top lifts off (there’s a grommet in the center of the top where the handle comes out of. The handle is anchored to the bottom of the base).

I'd love to know exactly how you made it! A tute possibly?

I know people are going to clamor for a tute, but I think you could totally sell those... the wedding industry is HUGE, and they would make great bridesmaid gifts.

I make purses all the time just for fun because I have sort of a purse fetish you could say. I just think this would be fun!

i wanted to sell them, but couldn't find an outlet for them. i'm not a salesperson and wouldn't know how to start. a friend and i made a bunch of them, but never got around to selling them.

they are a lot of fun to use!
