Scrappy Wallet!

Scrappy Wallet! I have been making handbags from scarves for several years now, and have a huge collection of scarf scraps. I had a bag on hand that I made several months ago and needed a wallet to finish off the project. I gathered my scraps in the color scheme of the bag and began piecing my scraps together. Now, I have a cute new wallet. I made a place for all those important cards we carry, special spot for your photo id, and plenty of room for all the hard cash I carry around. J/K. I did not have a dollar on hand to place in my new wallet.

Spring Time Poppy for MOMMY or Me!

Spring Time....Poppies for Mommy or Me!

Found a satin white pillowcase at the thrift store and a small woman's satin skirt in dark deep red....and my love for poppies I created a beautiful dress for a sweet little girl. After completing the dress...I feel in love with it. So I try it on and the way I made the arm holes and fit me too! So now you have a shirt for you or dress for her...all for the cost of......$3.24.

Date Night Clutch Handbag

Date Night Clutch Handbag.....made from dollar store items!
Two woven place mats (I chose tan and green place mats to match the napkins I found,) 3 satin napkins, some Velcro, felt and some random buttons and pearls found in the craft room. You'll need a sewing machine, glue gun, fabric tack and needle and thread!

WOW, look what you get after to put it all together! Two great clutches for the night out with that special someone...guess what it only cost me 6 bucks to make both clutches.

Here is a up close shot of the green clutch with two pretty flowers that even the beginner crafter can make.

So when you are in a pinch and want a cute new handbag and don't want to spend a ton of money, head to your local dollar store and look will be surprised what you can find to make any outfit look like a million bucks! Now take that new clutch handbag and go show it off to all your friends...and they thought you could not craft..boy they were wrong! Even your husband will be amazed what you can do with a few buck!
