I have been in a real crafting mood lately.  A couple weeks ago I was in Big Lot's and these place-mats begged to be purchased and used for anything other than place-mats.  It didn't hurt that they were $2 or $2.50ea.  So, here is what I've made so far:

Blue clutch outside, I have some blue denim left from another project that matched, so I made the flower:


The place-mats:



Blue clutch inside w/ring to attache chain to make handbag:


Animal print:


Hanging w/chain strap:


Sewing roll open:


Closed:


I haven't decided what to make with the other two yet.  Any ideas or comments welcome.

They're really nice.  The flowers are a touch that I'm trying to learn on my own right now.  I just made a kanzashi but would like to make others.  Any suggestions for books or existing tutorials?

Very ingenious. I love the animal print too. I love the flower. Great job!! Cheesy  For other ideas, maybe a wallet, or organizer to hang over a arm chair or a walker, just some thoughts.  Wink I might have to go check out Big Lots & see what I can fine. Thanks for showing.
