    That's such a pretty purse. I've never seen handles like that--will have to look for them. Did you follow a pattern for the purse or make it up yourself?

    Thanks for all your kind words, I have made so many of these bags. I'm a small person and they are just my size. I have them for every holiday and everything in between. Thanks again, such nice comments!!!

    Very clever of you to make up this "designer" bag! Love it!

    These bags are called The Interchangable Bag, its wonderful creator is Ellen Medlock. Her website is http://ellenmedlockstudio.com. Her handles are pretty expensive but you can find them on etsy or ebay. Thanks

    Your bag is so cute. My nearest 'thrift' store is an hour away. :-( But your pics did give me an idea to keep my eyes open for neat things like that. Thanks!

    Pretty bag. I would sure like one like that. I tried making a bag without a pattern and it grew to be the size of a diaper bag. ;-0
