Dollar Store Crafts (http://dollarstorecrafts.com/2011/11/project-dollar-store-accessory-thrifty-challenge-reveal-and-linkup/) has a challenge to correspond with Project Accessory for anyone who would like to play along and I decided to participate  week one.  

This challenge was to create a belt, a necklace and one other accessory to go with a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans based on items from a thrift store (or in my case, using the materials I found in my garage).


this is the purse that I started with and I used it along with a used the license plate and the broken Hot Wheel.

I cut down the purse at the bottom and flattened it and cut off the straps and attached one of them to each end instead of the sides.  On one side I glued the license plate and added 4 brads for decoration and to help hold it on the bag.  


On the back, there was an ugly spot where I removed the bow that had been on the purse, so I glued the broken Hot Wheel to cover it up, and it also gives the purse a different look depending on what side is facing outward.  I used velcro inside and glued it in to hold the purse closed.



The belt is made out of one of the straps and the snaps of of the purse and the wheel off of a model car.  The other components are thread, aluminum tape from the hardware store and 9001 glue.
