Lace Bag!

I created this bag out of a Thrifted Lace blouse for my partner in the "Bag Ladies Swap" on Flickr!
The theme of this swap was to Cut up your clothing & make a bag/purse out of whatever piece of clothing you chose.
I saw this blouse while thrifting & thought Hmmm...
this sure would make an Interesting bag!
I really do like the way it turned out. I think it is Quite Fun & a Little Funky!! I would Love to carry it!
Imagine all the Questions & Comments you would receive.
Is it hard for Ya'll to part with the things you make too, or is it just me??
