Purse from scratch

Here is my newest purse- from scratch.

I used some leather like material I got several years ago (and never used) for the outside. The inside is made from the pants pocked of an old pair of jeans. For the flower, I cut circular shapes with indentations. Then I burned the edges to give it a darker brown trim. The hardware are clasps from a pair of overalls and the hooks of a worn out purse.

The Peacock on the front was a broken broach that I sewed on.

This has turned out to be a great little purse.
