Today I wanted to make a purse after I saw this post by Casey: http://caseymini.blogspot.se/2011/05/original-tampex-purse.html
I just used a regular cardboard. And made a shape I thought would be nice for a purse, and stuffed it with toiletpaper =)
sofa with it before. I have some small parts of it too and thought it would be perfect for a purse.
I have tried to make purses before, but only the kind you could open, and that's a quit hard job to make a purse that you can open and put things into, when its that small its hard to sew, and glue makes it a bit clumsy I think, but this can't be open, that made it a whole lot easier =) I didn't sew a thing and just used glue on this one.
I made a handle from a bit of leather that I got from my mother-in-law (isn't it great to have lovely people that give you stuff to use for your crafts! =) )
All done, or?? My pregnant lady (she needs a name now, I cant keep calling her the pregnant lady all the times...) got to try the bag, and she said it needed some details..
so back to work..
now my doll thought the bag was so handsome that she fell backwards in surprise.. ;)
Here is a picture of the doll and the purse beside the bag with leather and felt pieces that I got from my mother-in-law. There are lots of purses, shoes and sofas in here.. ;)
I started making a suitcase today too =) But I will show you that one another day, because Im not finished yet. I saw the trunks Felma wrote about here: http://dollhouseminiaturesbyfelma.blogspot.se/2013/04/joyce-bernard-miniatures-featured-april.html and got inspired to make one of my own =) But this one is more of a suitcase than a trunk, I might do a trunk later.
