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.

That is so cool!

That would be something to take clubbing, for sure.
