I whipped up this little pouchy poo for my mom - I've made them for a while to sell, and she's always ooohing and aaaahhing over them...so it's high time she gets her own! Grin



the zipper pull is a pull that was store bought, and the charms changed out...it came with a really cheesy vinyl owl!  The exterior is a suede leather, and the interior is a buttery yellow dupioni silk, both are fabric samples.  Everything on this bag is repurposed...even the zipper is an old dress zipper!

I love this!  Great texture of the fabric and color, too.  The charm looks charming...sorry, I couldn't resist!  But I do love the charm!
Yay on the re-purposing and your tag is awesome looking!  Is it fabric and did you do it yourself?

Thanks for the compliments! Smiley I really hope she likes it Smiley

The tag is fabric, but I didn't do it myself.  hubby designed it (grin) and I had a lady on Ebay make my labels, they're machine wash and dryable without fading, and many of the bags I make are washable, so that is needed.

wow, very impressive.  I love to see things made from repurposed materials!  What an awesome job you did.
