The Purse That Wasn't

I've become hooked on Swap-bot after completing my first - the April Black and White Swap, hosted by the Shopping Sherpa. The handbag I made was well received in Canada. So I have found myself committed to 3 more! "Show Me Your Town" "Candy From Your Part of the World" ...and finally...
"The Purse That Wasn't"
The mission: Your job, should you decide to accept it, is to take a container that wasn't a purse and make it into a purse/tote. There are ideas for cereal box purses and knitted plastic bag totes on the web just to name a few. How about a purse from a book or a game board.There are no size requirements. Just don't use fabric. See what you can do. Remember to send on time and that we are all different. It should just be fun to see what you can come up with. Use your imagination. Send what you would want to carry.

So mine is made from a plastic shopper and cute masking tapes from Smiggle. The handle is pink plastic tube. I do hope my random swap partner likes it!

Cool bag - well done!

I love Smiggle but not so much now they've discontinued their skull and crossbones range :-( They tell me they're opening in Canberra soon - one less reason to leave the city.

I have some pink Smiggle contact paper I was given. Let me know if you'd like it...
