Ok, so it's been over a year but I finally finished my second attempt at a purse that resembles a diner booth.  The original attempt was made from an old purse I found at the thrift store which I took apart and refinished with my design.  Here's the original >> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=306514.0  It
was good and is still holding up today, but has a few flaws (the frame isn't rust-proof and the chain handle was one I bought at the craft store and was rubbing black stuff on my arm!)


So now I used all new materials and made a pattern based on what I learned from the first one.  Also, I ordered some more vinyl so I didn't have to cut up an old pair of pants for the white part like I did before Wink


Glamor shot!


How it compares to a person (....or, mannequin)


Route 66 Interior


FEET! Probably still one of my favorite things



I also made a smaller one with the purple vinyl I ordered.


Complete with Boomerang interior!


They're my babies Smiley  C and C appreciated!  Thanks for looking!

So cute!!!! Where did you order the glitter vinyl from? I've been wanting to make stuff out of this for a long time but haven't been able to find it at Joann's.
You did such a great job! This has to be the best use of glitter vinyl ever.

They are gorgeous and so unique! I love 50's style stuff, so that makes them even more amazing.  Grin
