So, I gathered as many bolts of laces, trims, fabrics, kitschy items and STUFF that I could grab, sat myself down on my sofa, propped my foot up on a pillow and started sewing!!
The one rule I made myself stick to was "JUST HAVE FUN"!!! Under no circumstances would I let myself stress out over, 'does it look right?", 'is it too small', is it too big', is it kitschy enough', 'is it too odd'!!?? and on and on and on........NO!!
And so I just started grabbing whatever was within my reach and sewed it on the purse. Some purses turned out cute, some turned out a little odd, but ALL were fun to make!!! And it was GREAT therapy as I recovered. As a matter of fact, it was sooooooooo much fun that I decided to finish them up and I've posted them in my etsy shop for sale- www.aremadelife.etsy.com .
And that's how the "Whatever Purse" was born!!! I do plan on continuing making them, even though my foot is doing better. (I'm still in that silly 'boot' thing but will hopefully be out of it soon!) Here are a few pictures of my Whatever Purses---let me know what you think!
Please be sure and leave me a comment, let me know what you think!
