My sister Natalie is currently serving a mission in France! Isn't that awesome? We are so proud of her! For Christmas she asked for a new scripture case. This is what I came up with...
This bag was actually a remake of a bag I found at a thrift store for $1. I wish I had a picture of what it originally looked like. It had a lot more Western cowgirl look to it and was very wide. I took in the sides and used the extra fabric to make the flower. I also shortened the already twisted handles.
First I cut the extra fabric into small half circles which gradually got bigger. Then I made two folds in each piece and sewed them so they would stay in place. Then I gradually added the petals to the purse to create a flower. I added the circle in the middle to cover up the raw edges. Then at the end I added a brad to the center for a more complete look.
