Yay, The Wallaby's first project!! A purse from a cardboard Mike's Hard Lemonade 6-pack container. I'm sure it's been done before, but I'm proud anyway. Took me maybe 5 hours total, cause I sewed by hand, and was very lazy.

The front, looks the same as the back

The sides look the same too

And the worst photo, erm, the strap. From yellow and black electrical tape.

I couldn't get a decent picture of the inside, but its lined with velvet-y black fabric. I tried spraying the outside for waterproofing, but ended up using packaging tape. Mostly hot-glued, except the sides. Pretty messy, but I'm still very proud! Oh, and I plan to put bottlecaps on the bottom for feet, as soon as I have enough.


I like personal swaps <3

...Oh fine!

That's great. I love the marabou on top! very cute detail. I like how you have the sides...very practical....I'll have to add that to my list of things I wanna make and hints on how to make them suck less. Congrats!

Sassy!  I love the bottlecaps as feet idea.

If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.

That is so cool!

That would be something to take clubbing, for sure.
