Yeah, Yeah, This should probably go in the other forum, but since there's no starburst involved, I'm putting it here.

So I got this litte pouch today - you know, the makeup bag type thing that's just a rectangle with a zipper?   Thought it'd make a way cool purse, but I didn't want a clutch, cause I figured I'd be too likely to leave it somewhere if it wasn't hanging off me, and I figured a purse would be safer if I went to a bar.

So I went in my room, and got this twisted rope stuff I bought on clearance at WalMart for 30 cents a yard.  Between the zipper and the end of the purse is a little gap, so I shoved the rope through those holes and tied knots in the ends to keep the rope in.

Now I have a purse, and the best thing is, it's the quickest conversion ever.  No tools needed, and it literally took me three minutes - COUNTING the time it took me to find the rope in my room.

Thought I'd share the tip in case any of you'd like to do the same things!

Those who hold on to broken dreams often get cut by their sharp edges.

:::light bulb above head:::  That's a good idea.  I have more makeup pouches than I know what to do with (they're all stuffed with makeup, but once I organize things, I'll have some empties)...I might have to try that.
