Littlequak posted a link about a contest through Miche. After being in the Teesha Morore Inspired swap, I decided to make a shell cover. I just found out about the contest on Sunday. So for the past four days I have slaved over this purse cover. It's basicly like a book cover that slides over an exisiting magnetic purse shell.


It's not perfect, but it was fun to make. I learned a lot while making it. I'd love to make a breast cancer themed one.

I already have 80 some likes. Someone said they should hire me. There are a couple offers to buy it. My head is swelling.  Cheesy

I would so contribute to a Breast Cancer project. Maybe Craftsters could contribute patches and you could raffle it off or donate the money from the sale of it. This would give us a chance to use up that pink fabric that everyone I swap with seems to dislike  Cheesy

I like this idea!

Me neither, but I sure like making them.

Thanks for the nice comments. Thanks if you voted for me too!

YES YES YES!

This is exactly what I hoped would happen when I posted that contest in the opportunities for craftsters section. Design something awesome for a chance to win? I knew someone on here would step up to the plate. You did an amazing job. I'm pretty sure if your bag wasn't entered they would have a hard time choosing a winner, but yours blows all the rest away. Great job <3

Thank you!!!

It baffles me that a site like Etsy, with all it's creative people, and there are not really any overly creative "magnetic bag covers." It's also hard to believe that yours was the first completed cover project on Craftster.

I think the direction you should go in is a Miche Shell Swap... maybe... just a thought Wink

All I know is I need to get my hands on some bright green fabric cause I love the look of your shell and I kind of want one really badly now lol.

I have absolutely no idea what a Miche shell cover is - but love this, and 'liked' it before sharing it.

215 likes at mo, but one of the others is up to 240, so get voting guys!!

A Miche bag is a bag that is basic and has magnetic shells so you can change your shell to match your outfit or mood.

Thanks for voting and sharing!

This bag cover is so much fun! I love all the different stitch techniques and extra embellishments used in TM patches. You did such an awesome job! Congratulations on winning the contest, and thanks for the St. Patty's day inspiration!
