I have wanted to do a challenge for months but it seemed time just got away from me. This time I was determined. I got a Lumber Liquidators catalogue in the mail and knew I had to make a handbag!

The Finished Product
Just a cute little wood grain handbag with a macrame handle. A wink and a nod to this year's April Fool's prank. I made it using ye olde candy wrapper chain method that I think I learned in Girl Scout camp.



The Catalogue



Beautiful Wood Floors Inside the Catalogue


The Strips Ready to be Folded


The Fabric of the Handbag Before Assembly

I hope you like it!

I've never been a big fan of that construction for purses, but the faux wood look just makes it so, so amazing!

Thank you so much. I too typically am not a huge fan of this method but in this case it just worked.  Cheesy
