Gifted and thrifted materials


This is a little purse I made a little while ago, inspired by some of the Japanese, mixed fabric creations. I bought a tiny, turtle neck, knit vest, strictly for the colour, thinking I might make a little pillow or something. I was given the pink and brown fabric, and had enough of it to make a skirt (almost complete) and had a bit of scrap for this project. The closure is conveniently taken from a shirt with snaps. It's lined in that same fabric too. Cute.
