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!
