I'm sure that I took photos of the before clothes. But it's, like, 11pm so I am not going to go searching through my memory cards for the photos. Just imagine a very large, dowdy, mid-calf length, 90's style dress and that is what I started with. And, a velvet zebra print, sort of an A shaped plus sized top. Here is the handbag broken down. I used the sheet to line the bag, denim for the outside and the nylon rope for the handles.
|I knotted the rope and burned the end so that it won't fray. The straps are held with part of the sleeve from the old dress.|
|Here is the back side. This bag was inspired by a bag that my mom gave me for my birthday. That bag used cotton rope. I just thought that the nylon felt soft and the ends melt under a flame. I might be a bit of a pyro.....|
|Lined with a light brown sheet. 100% cotton.|
|Here is the zebra! Isn't it so cute? I attached it with some Heat and Bond.|
|The bag. I like the simplicity and I love zebras.|
