Here's the story:  I lost my favoritepursethatwentwitheverything purse over spring break and was pretty bummed out. Soooo... when I got home I decided I needed to make a new purse (and finally had an excuse to make one for myself), and I got inspired and came up with this:

The face was originally supposed to be a woman, but the features aren't very feminine, so-- I'll let you decide whatever you think it is.

Yeah, this is the back, just in case you wanted to see it, but there isn't much to it, just gingham (?) fabric cut in random strips and sewed on then w/ zigzag.

So this is a close up of the face which has A LOT of stitching on it -- as in -- satin stitching, stitching on face, circles for cheeks, stitching on hair, stitching over hair (the hair is gray felt by the way) and then stitching on the blue fabric the buttons are on.

And this is the left side of the front... and the lighter purple looking wisps are actually blue netting stitched on so it gives it a different color.. and yeah there was a lot of stitching on this too.

So I pretty just went crazy with stitching and thread and etc. and this is how it turned out! I hope you like it!  oh-- and I'm sorry the pictures were so big, they didn't look that big when I was re-sizing them.

It looks like this bag probably took a long time to make what with all the piecing and stitching! It's certainly unique and I'm sure it will get you a lot of comments when you where it out. That's a good way to drum up craft business!

I'm up for personal swaps. PM me for availability and ideas!
