I've already recieved a few orders for this purse in particular. It's selling so fast that I don't even have time to post it to my etsy! (Not that I'm complaining!) So, if you are interested in one, let me know and I'll make one for you! The cost is $30+shipping, if you live out of town. And YES, they are made from recycled tee shirts! The roses are tee material and powder pink tulle. They ARE lined, with a pocket on the inside. Right now, the purses are about 50% recycled material, but will soon be made from about 80% recycled material. (The purse handles are not recycled, unfortunately, so if anyone knows of a supplier who sells recycled wooden purse handles, let me know!)
So, enough of the shameless shop plug. The acctual purse that is pictured is the very first one of it's design and will be finding a new home with my mother on christmas day! I can't wait to give it to her. I've been hinting to her about her present for about a month now...she knows that it is a purse, and it's made from tees, and she's even seen the roses...but I don't think she has any clue as to what it acctually looks like! I really hope she doesn't read this before she gets it!
