I've been working on making some covers for a magnetic purse. It took some practice, but I think I've got it down now. They are like a book cover that slips over a flat shell.

A friend gave me a bunch of upholstry samples, so I used some of those and some regular cotton fabric.

First up a Wild Things shell.

They are wonderful! So much more economical to make the shells rather than buy the super expensive ones

You can have a different purse and show your current cause with those shells!

My favorite is the one with the ruffle!
