Another week of So You Think You’re Crafty and I made it through (2nd Place..woot woot)… we are down to only 4 people and I am so honored to be in the competition with these other women! Make sure and check them all out on the SYTYC blog! So head on over to vote here!
Here is my project from last week. I’ll be posting the tutorial soon : )
Ok, first off I feel I should warn you I am a winter, black, grey, and layers kinda person. So this is not meant to be a summery purse, but I love it none the less and can’t wait to use it!
It all started with this skirt
I love this skirt, but I got it before I had kids almost 4 years ago. It doesn’t fit anymore. If I could count how many times I put it in a donate pile or in a garage sale and the quickly took it out because I always thought I can loose weight and get back it in. Which I am proud to say I could actually put it back on. But you know how nothing ever goes back the same after kids… it just didn’t look right anymore. But I still saved it and it kinda hurt me a little to chop it up. I was a little nervous I was going to ruin it and not like what I did with it… But I’m glad I finally got to use it and I love the purse!
and are you ready for my favorite part?! I have kids so you know how you’re always digging around for stuff and can’t EVER find it? Well… I left the zipper on the side so that it opens up even WIDER, you can actually see what you are looking for! So.much.fun!
It makes me giddy! : )
