ONE HOUR, A STRAW BAG, AND A LITTLE WOOL FELT

I came across this straw bag recently . . . on clearance.  It's lined in hot pink cotton.  No closure.  No embellishments.  Just a plain straw bag.  So, I got out that lime green wool felt I had left over from the ring bearer pillow I recently sold in my Etsy shop,  Gillyflower Cottage, and made a few felted roses and a closure tab out of what was left.  And, voila! 
A very inexpensive, fun summer bag!


The closure is actually magnetic and the buttons are just for looks.   I put a bright pink button in the center of the green one to tie in the pink lining.
This is a teesy felted rose on the other side of the closure tab - on the back of the purse.
I'm going to a luncheon at noon with one of my favorite groups of ladies and this will be the perfect bag for today!
