Last year I made this:



It took me most of the year to complete, because not only did I neglect it for weeks on end but I individually made and hand-sewed the tiny fabric yo-yos which are about 2cm in diameter. There are approximately 400 of them and yes it took forever.

 

But it was worth it. Green and purple are my favourite colours.  Cheesy

Wow, that is amazing! Looks great; I love purple and green too! I don't think I could have been committed to all those little yo-yos! Just love it!

Wow.  I love yo yos.  I've never seen a purse made of them.  It's pretty.  Now, that's labor intensive.

Love this purse!  How did you line it!  I'm 'wisting' this!  Oh yeah, and I'm also hitting 'this rocks'.

Thanks for the replies. Yay, I've never had a wist before!  Cheesy
I lined the bag with the same purple fabric as the purple yo-yos. And the handles are stitched between the lining and the bag.
