Bag Embellished with Guitar Picks.       

I'm generally a Cons and Lee jeans girl (easiest to dance in), but this bag is for going glam...without losing the "rock" factor.

I brought a black bag from Target.  (Couldn't find a clutch made out of material in my dodgy little regional town.)  It had beads all over the front.  I unstitched them.  And I unstitched the bag's lining.  I brought guitar picks (Approx. 130) @ 60cents each (AU $).  I spray painted some California Clears red.  Most guitar picks had holes poked into them with a hot needle.  Others had beads glued into the middle.  I was aiming to disguise most of the holes etc.  Then I stitched and glued the picks onto one side of the bag.  And restitched the lining closed. 
I'm in a band, know so many musos, and go to so many gigs; so I anticipated being genuinely asked for a pick.   So, there is a pocket inside, which I store 3 emergency picks.  (On the Pick Bag's Uni Club debut, I was asked for a pick by a fellow muso...[That was before he saw the pick bag!])
