A few days ago I had the urge to sew a small purse - When I need to do a quick bit of shopping I don't like to take a huge purse/bag filled with...``````~~~~~~ So I picked out three ties, and went to the design table. This is what I came up with.
The strap is webbing that I colored with alcohol inks in the same colors as the bag, but it did not photograph very well.
Bag size is 8"x6"x1.5"

You've been doing a lot of playing! What fun! The bag is very cute. I once made a bag from old jeans and used a tie for the strap!

Interesting use of the ties, this looks like a fun bag. I had to peek at many of your past posts, you are doing some real interesting work, I want to go back and look some more. You stay very busy with your art! Good work! I got here from the MMArtfriends group.

what a great way to repurpose ties. I have a huge bag of them I often dream of making a quilt with. Now I am thinking I could spare a few to make a bag with. This is a great idea. I love the way you used the dots and stripes. You are so clever, thank you for sharing.
