5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From Napkins to a new purse! First Post! on: February 25, 2008 08:21:00 AM
I found these napkins at a store that was going out of business. I got them for about 20 cents each, and the lining is some old fabric my mom had from years ago.

Hope ya'll like it! Constructive criticism is welcome!
