My younger brother and I were going through some of our old stuff at our parent's house and we came across this case from 1984.  My brother put it in the garbage pile...I saved it and put it in my craft pile.

I took it home and attached a snap and shoulder strap (both of which I already had in my supplies)...and viola!

A new purse/briefcase for me!

All for the low Kmart price of 4.97!

Snap (to keep it closed):

Inside:


I would love to hear your feedback!

I'll bet your brother is completely envious. "Mo-o-o-m, she took my toy and made it better! Make her give it back!"

I think it was more like "Mo-o-o-m, don't let her wear it until she goes back home and I don't have to be identified with her."  Grin He looked at me like I was crazy. Oh well.
