I made this purse by weaving the pop tabs with ribbon, then yarn.  I then sewed the lining in, which i made out of an old placemat.  The shoulder strap is made out of two types of ribbon ironed together. I submitted it to the Scholastic art awards, and got a silver award! Very exciting!  What you you think?

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

This is so cute. If I drank anything that came in cans I would probably even make one for myself in different colors.

That is really neat.  Though I have seen pop tabs used in sewing/crocheting projects, I have never seen anyone thread ribbon through pop tabs.  I love the effect!!  Awesome job.
