I made this bag from a velvety material, with cute striped lining (should have taken a pic of the lining - oh well) and beaded strap.



So how are the beads the star of the show?  The strap detaches to become a necklace!  How fun is that?  



The toggles on the sides just tuck into the purse and it becomes a clutch.

Fun! Beaded purse straps are always cool and that it doubles as a necklace makes it that much cooler  Smiley

Love this!  Especially the dual purpose for the bead handle.  So cleaver and the color scheme is beautiful.  Really nice job! Smiley

 You did a great job sewing the velvet bag, and turning the strap into a necklace is brilliant! I love it, and it would be fun going out to dinner .

What a great idea!  I love this, the purse is lovely on its own, and so is the necklace.
