First, I am sorry about the poor quality pics. I have a webcam and it takes horrible pics. Second, if I posted in the wrong place, I am sorry mods please move it. Thanks!
Anyway mom says these purses are sooo cute. It's an old pair of jeans made into a purse (yeah I know you have seen it before, how original right?) She lives out of state so I made this for her and am going to ship it. Please tell me your thoughts. I am stuck. I like how it's coming together but I think the back of the purse needs to be changed. Any advice would be sooo appreciated. Thanks Smiley
Here we go:
Front of purse (she likes flowers and gardening so I put a rose patch, there are strips of sequins along the pockets, and a cool fishnet style maroon ribbon sewn the one pocket, little flowers above the watch pocket)

Inside detail with lining (you could see my stitching so I put this pretty black braided 'ribbon' with silver beads running through it. I know it's hard to see but I think it looks nice)
Back (this is where i am stuck I think I need to take the bow off and add something to the pockets...but WHAT???)
Handle (braided left over jean material)
Please tell me your thoughts I want this to be perfect.

I think it's great! well if you wanted to.. you could add another rose/flower patch on one/both of the pockets... or you could write something on them with fabric paint...
you could even use a sash (sp?) or small belt and run it through the loops. all I can think of right now... if I think of anything else I'll let ya know!  Cheesy
