So here are some more purses I made back in high school.

The first one it made out of steel wire and copper mesh, with a clasp I removed from a bag I got at goodwill. It is more decorative than functional, but could still be used occasionally to carry things.

The second purse is also made from steel wire and copper mesh. I made tons and tons of little stars out of the wire and decided to weave them together into a sort of evening bag. I thought about lining the purse, but never got around to it and wasn't really sure about what material/color to use for the lining.

The final purse is a bit unusual. I designed it to be like a flower. The petals open to reveal the contents of the bag. The green leafs on the outside form pockets and the yellow part (I can't remember what the proper name for it is on a flower) is a pocket at the bottom. I hope it's clear in the pictures.

sorry the pics are not better

Thanks for looking! Questions, comments, criticisms welcomed....

I really love that last bag!! Especially the way it looks when it's all closed up - it reminds me of the Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors! (I dunno how you feel about LSOH, but it's one of my favorite movies)
It also is amazing in the design concept in general. I love the fact that it has so many useful little pockets. And the fact that it's a flower is the best! So whimsical.  Cheesy

GASP! I love the wire bags, but the big bud leaves me swooning! If you ever want to sell that pattern, let me know. That utterly rocks.

I actually love the wire with star one most.  If you still want to line it (so it can be used as an actual bag)  I recomend clear plastic.  I have often used the kind you make storm windows with - not the sleezy cheap stuff you shrink on the window, but the thick crystal clear kind - might be hard to find until fall, however, as Menards only carries it then and not all home improvement places carry it at all.  I think most fabric stores will have something similar.

I love the flower bag! It reminds me of something from a video game. Like from pikmin or zelda or something.  Very inventive!
