Placemat Purse

Believe it or not these adorable purses are made from an ordinary place mat. A friend recently showed me a purse made from a place mat and now I am a bit addicted. I will never look at a place mat the same! You may ask what are the benefits of using a place mat.... Well they are sturdy, have a great texture and the edges are all finished so the inside looks nice and clean! There is no need for a lining. The first purse is a red ribbed place mat with black acrylic handles. The handles are attached with black grosgrain ribbon that is tied in a bow on both sides. The second is a teal ribbed place mat with brown and teal flower grosgrain ribbon. The ribbon was also used as the handles. The bag measures 13.5" wide x 7.5" tall x 3" deep. These would also make a great Church scripture tote!

Connor Bag #2 with Diaper Clutch

Who knew that green and brown paisley could look so cute with denim! This set also includes a diaper clutch. The diaper clutch is the perfect size for a travel size wipe container and 3 or 4 diapers. It's great for keeping your diaper bag organized or to grab for a quick trip. It measures approx. 7 1/2" x 11". Both bags are fully lined. The diaper bag measures approx. 13" x 16 1/2".

Pilot Jack

The Jack Bag is made from a navy corduroy paired with a cute airplane novelty print. I loved working with the corduroy. It added richness and depth to this bag. For the lining I used the same airplane print with 6 corduroy pockets.
