GRETA'S BIRTHDAY PURSE!!

now i know i said i was going to post this on wednesday night but since i was unable to go to work on wednesday to give it to her, i had to give it to her yesterday (which really doesn't explain why i am posting on friday except that its been busy around here).

i was completely inspired by this post by stephanie.

i used a vintage "green hen" fabric and i glued a sewn lil black square on the front (this was due to thinking of it after the purse was finished) and sewed vintage green buttons on the square.

its hard to tell in the picture, but there is two pleats at the top on each side.

this purse took me forever due to never making one like this before. i tried a few different things and did pull some hair out, but i do like the results.

so what do ya think?
