    I found these fabrics at the thrift shop in a grab bag...even the handles were thrifted.
    I like to use the left overs to make little wallets, and other accessoriess to include in the bags. I made up the patterns as I went along, just having fun.

    wonderful recycling, or is it upcycling? I get confused. They look really good. Nice skills!

    Great job! I always look for that box of old purses at garage sales. Take them home and cut them up. Often you can reuse handles, catches, magnets, rings etc in your next creation.
