Woven Purse....Happy Mother's Day to Me!

Can you believe little old me made this??? Isn't it
cute. You know what it's like when you take
a new class that turns out to be
life changing......well this is just the one. While
attending Birdsong at Karla's Cottage
I was lucky enough to learn this cute
weaving technique from Lisa McAlvain of
Tarnished & Tattered. It's just like what you did at
Girl Scout Camp....a weaving on a piece of
cardboard. I even made this one at home....so
really anyone can do it! I hope you have an
artfully creative day....try this little ditty....you'll
be amazed at the fun you will have..... and who doesn't have
old fabric and a sheet of cardboard lying around.
Blessings!

Love it- I already made a bracelet and started a "sparkly" purse last night using some lace and gold lame fabric. It's a great project- and Happy Mother's Day!
