Since we'd been warned about the next storm (raging outside at this very moment) Hans and I went to the grocery store today and for the first time in either of our lives we saw a lot of bare shelves.
It's a very unsettling feeling.
So onto a safer subject.
Yet one more evening bag (I'm not sure why I feel the need to make so many bags from this one pattern! I guess I just like it). Instead of two handles, I made a strap. The flap on the front is one of the pattern variations.
I used a linen napkin for the body of the purse (it's from the same batch of napkins I used to make the second bag at this post). The flap, straps, and bottom are from a woven curtain panel I found at The Good Will.
It has a magnetic snap on the inside and there's supposed to be one on the flap but my snaps are very strong and I would have been yanking too hard all the time in an effort to lift it.
I just added a heavy decorative button instead and the weight of it holds the flap in place nicely.
This is the original bottom but I didn't like it so I had to rip the whole thing apart.
Here it is with a new plaid bottom and I thought since I'd added antique bronze D-rings to the strap I may as well follow up with bronze purse feet.
Some residual Super Bowl fun.
Here's Chlorox enjoying (NOT!) my glow in the dark bracelet in the form of a necklace.
Oh, look!!! Her eyes glow too!
Such a pretty kitty.
