New purse!

What girl doesn't love a new purse, especially if that new purse is free? Since I was 15, all I've paid for my purses is the cost of a little duct tape and ribbon. I just finished a new yellow and brown number for spring.
I usually just make a form from cardboard and cover it in tape, but I wanted something a little sqishy-er and bigger this time around. I took an old freebie bag from a library conference, similar in shape in texture to a reusable grocery bag, and cut it down to the size I wanted.
I covered the whole deal with tape and added rivets and ribbon for straps. It's big enough to throw in a book and a snack, so I'm ready for summer!
Once again, duct tape proves that it is good for it!
