Trash Bag Purse finished

My "Trash Bag" purse is finished and ready to turn in tonight at the Capital Quilters Guild Meeting. I am meeting friends for dinner at a Mexican restaurant before the meeting, then turning in my quilt, purse, and donations for Symposium.

I decided not to add a strap, as I think the clutch purse is just right for this fancy fabric. I used three hand-sewn pieces of Velcro the flap to make it stay closed. The inside is a shiny pink moire satin
that I have gobs of for some reason. Maybe it was to line a pair of curtains that never got made.

If you would like to see more of how this purse was made, just search my blog for Creative Challenge or Trash-to-Treasure.

I love your purse. It is beautiful! You are very artistic. I particularly like how the colors blend together. I agree on not having the strap.
