i made this a while ago but i was too lazy to post it until now. i made this purse from the pockets of this old vest. the fabric is corduroy. Any suggestions on what i can put on it to not make it as plain?
Here are the pics:

and then someone told a story about something dead and gory
there was heat
from the fire
but i still froze when i saw the ghost

I have to agree, that's awesome. it looks like something you'd see in the store- that style of purse seems to have become popular.

excellent job!

Wooow, I love it!!! It looks really professional... and so... many... pockets...  Shocked I am in love Cheesy I don't think it's too plain as it is, but I guess you could just add some more colour somehow? Great job.

Were those inside pockets a headache to make?
And I guess some sort of floral stencil, or maybe appliques? would spice it up. That or doodle like a madwomen with some rainbow sharpies.

No, they weren't too hard because those pockets were already on the vest so i just sewed them together.
