My first attempt at constructing a purse from scratch! I call it the Crocodile Tears purse.

I was inspired by finding the little stick on metallic water drops on clearance. The material was a vinyl remnant from JoAnn's and some felt. Handle is braided strips of the same vinyl.

Design close-up

Mr. Croc is made of felt and machine-stitched onto the material!


Lined with iron-on interfacing and a black and white plaid material from my stash.

I love purse charms, so I added one made from some junk I had lying around.

It's a bit lumpy and bumpy, but I was pleased with it for my first try! I was going for that mini-bowler bag effect.

Hope you enjoy!
