For those confused by the antlered ni in the corner of the flap, please refer to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, particularly the knights who say ni Smiley


For the recent TV/Movie swap I made this purse.


The back


has a big pocket hiding little pockets.


Map fabric for the lining with a single, long pocket.

The up-cycled black sheet is made sturdier by fusible fleece. The strap is padded with two lengths of fleece. Its long- 50-60 -but can be made shorter by tying or threading through/clipping to the loops differently.


The tribute I designed (I think. Sometimes ideas seep in without my knowing Roll Eyes by doodling on clear contact paper (the paper backing, not the plastic.) After cutting it out with a knife, I stuck the contact paper (the plastic) on the wrong side of the fabric and painted over it with dark gold fabric paint, making sure it soaked through to get the distressed look.

It was pretty fun to make!
