What does bra elastic have to do with my collage purse I am working on? Bra elastic actually makes wonderful binding for this purse!! Here’s the proof:
The last time I visited my good pal, Lori Seavey-Christian- down in So Cal, we went to the Fiber Swap Meet with Capril and found some terrific elastic. This day was documented in Lori’s blog here.
and here it is used on my purse:
I am so glad to have finally found a good use for this stuff! I had tried crocheting with it, but it didn’t look right.
The purse is almost finished, but it still needs handles and embellishments! The flower is actually a 3D flower- which I like. It still needs some beadwork, too. Right now, to me the bag looks naked without some beading.
Does anyone out there in Blog-ville make and create your own purses or bags?? I would love to show some and showcase them next month on my blog. If you have something you want to share, just drop me a comment and I will contact you.
postscript: Here is a finished picture of the purse:
