How cute is this! and it is really, really big. It's a generous 12" X 8" and very roomy inside. The double handles are sturdy and woven right into the design of the purse. The purse itself is woven from bright magazine pages. Click on the pics and you can see the little images from the pages. And I won it last week in a blog contest here. Nan kindly suggested that it was mine - and that if I didn't fancy carrying it, I could sell it on Ebay. No, not this purse girl. I changed purses at the office and carried it home! THE MAN, yes, M-A-N at the Starbucks on the way home saw it on the seat next to me in the car and asked about it. I really, really love it. Thank you, Nan. This was such a generous give-away. I know you think they are so time consuming to make that you can't bring yourself to agree to sell them, but maybe you should teach some classes.
Below you can see it close-up. See how shiny it is! Its feels like the pages were laminated before the folding and weaving began. What craftsmanship! She also makes other beautiful purses from recyled garbage bags. Nan is a true artist. And she's not just crafty, but she's funny, too. I've put her on my growing lists of blogs I read regularly.
REMINDER: Nannybird Crafts is giving a purse away TONIGHT, but you have to do some counting. Get on over there now and enter her contest. Oh, and tell her The Tattered Rose sent you.
