Sewing Project

When I'm not drawing or doing collage work in the studio, I'm hunting through forgotten treasures in thrift stores and flea markets. Lately I've been finding discarded fashions with some vibrant patterns and colors. I left the price tag on this skirt to prove that it truly was just $2.10. (you can click on the picture to see more details.) I transformed it into a patchwork handbag. I'll have more to share here very soon. Comments appreciated!

Very clever idea. What a good find as to the price of the skirt. In the 2 photos of the purse, I can see a variey of small buttons on the side seams, nice addition. Was there a pattern, or did you cut out freehand? Perhaps add the dimensions.
