I made this makeup bag/wristlet from a vintage women's button down shirt. What I loved about it immediately was the great floral embroidery. The bag has the same embroidery on both sides and is lined with the same fabric. The closure is the original button down placket because I am not good with zippers. But it will definitely keep stuff in there!

I love the way you used the shirt's button as the closure.  Brilliant!  You used the perfect blouse for this project.
