craftster to me means meeting new friends and trying new things. before coming to craftster i only ever painted. now i sculpt in polymer clay, sew cloth dolls and now...i tried my hand at my first hand sewn pouch bag for my daughter!

i am really nervouse as i have never entered a challenge before. but craftster has taught me that you never know what you can do until you try...so here i am , trying something again!


here is a beetlebug pouch perse i made for my daughter out of fabric and also some felt. it is big enough to hold lunch money, some lil tampons, and a phone , ipod or whatnot!



i saw a bug purse before that was alot bigger and more intricate on pinterest, not like this but it inspired me.

i hope it is creative enough for consideration!

huggles! -artista83

and as you can see the inside of the purse is in his mouth and into his belly! i tried to get a pic of stuff in his mouth but my camera died when i was going to take it so these are the ones i have. also there is velcro to close it

That is RIDICULOUSLY adorable.  I never thought I'd describe a beetle like that.  Awesome job for your first purse!
