so i was inspired by phobe.com to make my own coffin purse. after seeing the tutorial and then the ones they sell at hot topic for 26$ i decided i could make my own cheaper and better. while i definitely think it's better, i don't know that i was cheaper after all the crafting supplies i bought. but hey, at least i can say i made it myself.

here is the trial i did first using a cereal box and two old shirts. it's basically a clutch/wristlet. it came out pretty bad, so i'm glad i did a test run. i won't show the inside because... it's definitely not up to dracula standards.

the second one. i used satin this time, and added a blue ribbon back-pack style strap. i looked at my trusty jansport first to see how exactly they are put together.

the inside...lined in light purple satin...even though it looks mostly white

a shot of one of the two toggles i sewed on to keep it shut. before i started this, i naively assumed it would be easy to sew through heavy duty corrugated cardboard that had been reinforced with packing tape. i ended up having to use a thick curved mattress needle...i broke two in the process.

i'm happy with the results, except i want to jazz up the front a little bit. The ones at hot topic had crosses on them, but i don't think i want to go in that direction

That is such a good idea! I keep wanting to buy a misfits coffin shaped lunchbox but I am so broke, maybe I should just craft my own! I really like the first one too, what a cute ribbon

A knife?
A knife through a heart?
A bleeding rose?
A white rose?
A lock of hair tied with a ribbon?
A single fang?

I dunno. Something on the front would be a good idea, I do thing, but I don't know what would look nice. Crosses=bleh.
