"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

My Grape Purse!

 So this is my "Italian Purse" I took an Italian class with my dear Italian girlfriend, Rosemarie. She makes me think I can speak it well. After studying about grapes and wine, I came home and designed this purse so I could bring my flash cards to class in it.  Buon Giorno!
The yarn was all from scraps from other afghans I have made. I took the handles off of an old tired leather purse! RECYCLE!!

 I put in plenty of pockets because I can never find things in my messy purses.

 I have a chartreuse blouse from Chico's that I just love wearing. I have a bright purple wool coat that I also like wearing. My daughter calls me a gypsy because I enjoy wearing bright, almost flamboyant colors. I made this purse to tie the coat and the blouse together. I almost look decent wearing them.
I made up the rose and sculpted a rose from sculptures clay, and glued it on the crocheted rose.
The yarn is all from Michaels craft store. I always buy on sale.
 I found some neat key chains at the dollar tree. Each one had sayings and prayers engraved on them. I took the chains and used them as zipper charms. This one says: "Live, Love and Laugh"

 This is my favorite purse. It is quite large. I made the rose out of some mohair scrap yarn. It is red (my favorite color) and brown. I put plenty of pockets in it so I can find my stuff!
 I save everything! I have a box full of broken jewelry which I make into new stuff, like this zipper pull of hearts and crystal.
