Purse Inspiration

As promised, here is a little Spring motivation for you! Actually this may be more fit for Summer, but you get the idea...something warmer than the present state of frozen we seem to be in.

Anthropologie is a great source of inspiration for me. Teresa posted about this bag a few days ago, which is adorable!

And I am in love with all of these...


But this made me feel like the hot summer sun was shining in my window, so I decided to try this one first...


Here's my creation. What do ya think?



It's a large tote bag (or Beach Bucket as Anthro. refers to it!) made of some sort of burlap I found in my stash with cotton interior panel and lined in a heavy cotton canvas. And of course, tons of hardware! Grommets, rectangle buckles, adjustable buckle, and a couple of hooks...love that stuff! The handle is extra long with an adjustable strap so it can be worn over the shoulder or across. [On a side note, I only needed a little help from my husband on the adjustable handle this time! I did have to get a bra out of the laundry to figure it out though :)]

Think Spring!

I LOVE IT!! Looks super cute! I've never made a purse with grommets before, but I will have to try if the outcome is anything close to your bag!! Great job Roxanne!

I love to have different kind of puse specially for combine it with my clothes. I think every desing is identified with the personality of each woman. I prefer a comfortable and big purses because i usually carry many things even like when i buy viagra for my boyfriend.
