Paris "Pantalon" Purse

Isn't it fun to repurpose old things?  Okay, maybe half the fun is in shopping junk stores for the funky item I just know, one day, will be perfect for some project.  It takes visions of grandeur for sure.  You'll never guess what I made this chic purse out of... or maybe you will because it's in my title.  Hee hee!

Pantalon ~ "Pants!"

Two different pairs of red printed pants.  Isn't the Paris print so sweet.  At least on a purse right?  Here is a closeup of the flower I made to embellish it and the tag I added to the seam.

My eyes (& heart & mind probably too) are always searching for the bigger picture when it comes to crafty stuff, and it is a joy to see the fruits of my shopping "labor."

Hope you have a wonderful day, (look out for staples for your next project in unexpected places.)
