Blog Archives - The love of recycling slightly used items in my home and life!
 
This handbag pattern is so easy to make....it takes about 3 hours from start to finish to make them.  On my handbag the black and yellow one, I added a loop for my keys and later a black and yellow flower.  They have 3 pockets on the inside which could easily be changed to 4 if you would like.  I am going to add on outside pocket to my next one.  They are the perfect size and so light.....I LOVE IT!!!! This is the website I got my inspiration and instructions from.  http://www.warehousefabricsinc.com/blog/pleated-lined-handbag/
 
 
I purchased 3 pumpkins ranging in size at .10 a pound from the local grocery store for $3.68.  I also purchased a hat, crow and netting from the dollar store for $3.18.  The rest of the items I found from around the house in my box of left over fall decorations.   I ran a dowel though all the pumpkins down in to the dirt in the pot of stablize her. I made the broom from the grass plants in my yard and a black pipe with electrical tape wrapped around it. The arms are silk flowers with all the flowers removed just leaving the stems.  The nose and eyes are from a fall floral pick.  I love her.....
