I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

That is the coolest purse I've ever seen!!! Love all the fabrics you used and the beading. You're so lucky to work at a zoo:)

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

I just love this idea.  Are the legs just knotted fabric ribbons?  Or is that the beaded part.  Just can not tell from the photo.

Thank you so much everybody!

For the legs I used biased tape and kinda cut it "beetle-leggish". Then I sewed close to the edge, because I wanted it to frey a little to make it look hairy. There is no beading  on the legs, just the carapace.

I don''t work at the zoo. I'm just a volunteer. I get to tell people about the animals. It's really cool. If you have a little extra time left in your week, check out your local zoo. Most of them accept volunteers.
