Flea bags and bears...

I love this sweet girl....for you ~

I finished the flea bag!!
It's so wonderful to take an old, forgotten handbag
and give it a new life ~
I used Fabri-Tac glue on all of the lace and
hand sewed the rest on.
You know I had to get a watch face worked in....

The strap (long enough to drape across your chest) is sewn onto the back
easy to open and close to pull cash out a pay for your found treasures....
I hope you love it Susan!

I also finished making a vintage looking bear for my sweet friend Pam...
she brought me the bear and I simply dressed her up!
You can see how I do it here if you've not found the post yet ~

Now I've got to get busy cleaning up this studio!!
I'm sure no one wants to see all my mess :)

Wishing you a great Wednesday dear friends ~
hugs ans love,

Dawn, there can NEVER be enough lace, trim, buttons and ribbons, etc. on a woman's purse. The bear too is dress well enough to wear it now as well.

Dawn... you have very busy creating... Love the purse... It is somewhat cool this morning and feels really good for change... We have had such a unusal spring and summer... Our area is struggling but surviving....

Gorgeous! I love all that lace on the purse - and your bear is so sweet. When I had my crafting business I rescued bears from garage sales in much the same way. Perhaps I'll post a couple from that long ago and far away day.

That bag is amazing! I'm sure that Susan will love it. Sweet little girl. I see the mosquitoes have been after her, but she's still smiling.

The bag turned out beautifully, Dawn! I am loving the bear, though! I have bunnies that need some new outfits and I've been trying to figure out how to do it without actually taking apart the dresses made for them and trying to do my own. I was thinking maybe baby dresses.

LOVE the Flea Bag! What a great thing to carry in our shop. Is that possible? Or is it one of a kind? Lucky Susan!!!!
Just think you are so talented and this is just one of the examples of it...

Sweetest Dawn,-
your bag is simply gorgeus, what a beautiful thing you have created-love the added watchface in the middle of the doily, and the seam bindings holding the lace together- oh my- dear, you are such a wonderful artist.
Love your dress up, for Pam`s bear- with her own watch, and lovely tags- I`m sure both friends will be so happy for what you made, dearest Dawn.
Love and hugs, from here.

Wonderful, wonderful flea bag, and such a sweet bear!

Barbara Jean said...

Love your bear and bag.
Why do you call it a 'flea' bag??

Just saw another blog with instructions for a 'ditty' bag. had never heard of that either.
A whole world of bags out there to learn about. =)

You did a beautiul job on the purse. They all co-ordinate so well. Liked the added feature of the clock face. Just a little fun.
