One of my favorite games as a kid...Operation! Not to mention funky pieces and way too much fun to work with!

The purse is folded out of the lid, and covered with a clear contact paper to protect it from the elements. I lined it with an old skirt. And the handles are an embroidery hoop broken in half and covered with the word Operation which I patiently peeled from the sides of the lid. They're held on with pieces of wire from the tweezers; and you can see them hanging from the handle sortof like a little purse charm!

Enjoy guys! This was so much fun to make!

I loved that game as a kid and really enjoyed watching my kids play it when they were younger.  Great job on the bag, it brings back so many good memories  Grin
