Purse Magic

© Purse Magic

I made this awhile back to store driving license, credit cards, and some cash 
whenever I cannot carry a handbag along.

This design is easy to reverse engineer so I am not planning on a tutorial 
but below is a few notes.
Design Notes:
  • The front tab can be shaped as desired - scallop, envelope, zig-zag, etc.
  • It is important to make sure that the inner layer (the last set of pictures) is not much deeper than credit card size. Otherwise, have fun fishing out your stuff!

Bow Tie

I got this lovely piece from a local fabric store.
They have a tonne of old stock (fabrics, trims, patterns, etc) in the back room.
According to the owner, those stocks are at least 25 years old.
I guess this piece can be considered vintage. 
All I did was gluing a pin on the back side.
