I made this bag for a friend's daughter for her birthday.

I found the cord fabric at Goodwill for a dollar!   It matched the butterfly fabric that I've had in my stash for a while.  So I made the purse: a wallet, a personal tissue holder, a drawstring coin purse and an additional drawstring bag and the 3 sets of barretts. 

I don't  get to sew for girls that often so I had a blast making it.  I love the way it turned out and when she got it, she immediately started using it (even though she got 2 other purses at her party).  Can't get a better compliment than that.

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......
