I took two purses ripped out zipper in the one i was restoring purse on right, the zipper was sewn in lining so out it came too, I took off several part of other purse, tear and cutting parts off them took some time. I also took Magnetic snap out of left purse.


The Dl window I tore out to make a future travel tag.


I put (stapled ) lining back in trimmed with fur, i cut from furry house shoes i never wear.(which covered the staples)I hand stitched the fur to tack down. Then installed magnetic snap and added  cute pink ribbon bow.
 I also added some girlie charms on sides.




I love it...This is so girlie and so me! Goes great with my pink Uggs


also made matching camera bag for it...

What an incredible pink creation! The final pink bag is marvelous!
I don't know how you have the patience to rip out all those bags and pieces! 
Enjoy using it!
Thanks for sharing!
