Earlier this summer I decided that I wanted to try out crewel embroidery.  So I found a cute little kit at the Salvation Army and proceeded to make it.  When I was finished, I thought "Well that's nice.  Now what?"  So I decided to turn it into a purse, which, btw, I'm rather proud of.



It's lined and closes with a snap.



I was going to keep it, but then I decided that I don't need another bag, and I have to support my crafting habit somehow.   Cry   I will miss it.

Please see the FAQs of advertising on the main page of the Purses section regarding asking for etsy store links, etc.
This should be carried out via PMs Smiley
