Hey y'all!  Here's what I made:


It's a purse made out of vinyl placemats, a dog chain, and a fake flower. Here's what I started with:


Here's a full length view:


I was able to peel the printed vinyl part off of the backing to make a lining, which didn't go exactly as planned:


It's all held together with hot glue, and it has a velcro closure.  Here's a side view:


I am pointing out my mistakes in the interest of honesty and fair competition.  Oh, and I attached the dog chain with split rings that I already had, but I could have bought a couple of key chains at the dollar store.  If I had, my total would have been $6 plus tax.  I did take the purse out with me one night, and it didn't fall apart. Yay!
