I posted this yesterday but will try again today.  Below is Amaranth's bag before:

I took the zipper and the lining out and used the trim to make the closure with a magnetic snap. I also used leather that I cut off of another old purse.  I added appliques and buttons and resewed it with a new lining.  The results:
Front:

back

and lining with extra goodies:


Hope Amaranth likes it!

Well, my partner received about a week ago, I guess she's been busy, because I haven't heard from her. So I'll just go ahead and post pictures!

Before (handle was all crusty, it had to go!):


After (its hard to see, but the handle is made from Alexander Henry tattoo fabric):

gingerquilts and modgepodge! those bags are both so awesome!

modge-wow and I glad to see that handle go! it really was a mess wasn't it? I wish I could see the fabric better though...it has traditional tattoo flash designs on it? I see sacred hearts in the pic i think.

ginger-I love the front of that bag! with the new clasp...I really like the new clasp!
