As I have stated previously, I have a short little span of attention...so this week I tried making something new.  I had picked up some old purses at the thrift shops and dove into my statsh of sweaters and coats etc.  I have used some vintage table cloth fabrics to line some of the bags.  I had a lot of fun coming up with designs.  The flowers are made as pins and then applied to the bags so that they can be used on jackets or hats as well.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Kim
