I love love loveeeee the 50’s style.
And since I have a dress like this:
(forgive my whiteness)
I figured why not make a purse that fits the style?
So I got bored and drew a pattern…
(forgive bad drawing)
But that didn’t work because I didn’t have markers to color in the colors that I wanted… so I went to paint!
and found some inspiration! 🙂
Then I found the perfect fabrics in my bag of scraps.
and i kidnapped a white zipper from the huge box of zippers in the theatre department at school
(had to shorten it a bit)
Got all the detail pieces cut out and sewed on
(sorry the back ground is my boyfriends futon.)
and using this adorable polka dot fabric as the lining
Made a handle out of some awesome black denim fabric.
I haven’t finished it yet… gotta see if I can talk boyfriend into sewing it for me with the sewing machine… Machines don’t like me…. I’m excited to see the finished project. And I’lll be sure to post pictures.
