I had this idea for a handbag floating around in my head for weeks before I decided to finally do it. I love to mix styles and had eyed some pinstripe material you would normally see on a pantsuit. I thought how cool it would be to make a bag out of that and add some edgier elements to it. My husband suggested that I make some thing with skulls and crossbones since they’re super popular right now. I added some metal studs and some cute lining I found in the remnants bin and I love this purse so much that I ended up keeping for my own personal collection.
