The flap and hardware are from a purse I made last summer - from light colored silk - so it didn't hold up very well. 

The new improved version has a coral linen body (from a failed attempt at a dress) and dark brown ultrasuede base - and is a backpack!  Love backpacks!  The leave both hands free!

  The straps are just grosgrain ribbon, which worked out much better than I thought it would!

The flap is heavily embellished.

What brilliant recycling Smiley You really had to reuse such a beautiful piece as that flap and now it looks lovely.
