This is a variation on an idea that I posted earlier. The postcards are sewn on under a layer of vinyl. They're both by the fabulous Anne Taintor. Let me know what you think!

Oh I love them!  I really like the handles on the purse on the right!  Did you have a pattern or did you wing it?  Great job!  Grin

Thanks for the comments, ladies. Smiley

As an answer to your questions 1.) Yes, you can take them out in the rain, but probably not a monsoon, 2.) The left one was done without a pattern and I stole the handles for the right one from a Vogue pattern.

Ciao!
