Hey there!  So about a month ago I made asquare bottomed purse out of some red craft fur, an old simpsons sheet and some silvery handles from an old gift bag.  I reinforced the sides with thick craft foam, only because I didn't want to have to buy something for it.  I added some huge red buttons and red hair elastics for the closure and poof!

Maggie looks kinda washed out from my flash, but she is yellow!

Thanks for looking!

I don't want to take the credit for inventing that idea!
I think it was SHS (a user here) that said she used those for something with her purses.  I just remembered that when i needed something to close it!

What a great idea!
Hairbands as closures...I never would have thought of that. Shocked

The hairband closure is just an elastic hair thingy that i sewed onto one side of the bag.  the other side of the bag had a button for it to go around... it works really well actually!
