At the thrift store, I found a sad, gold evening purse that needed to be saved. It was tattered and torn, but the rhinestone purse frame was undamaged and had uber potential. I knew right away which fabric I’d use to revive this gem. The pleated Asian floral fabric reminds me of a fan, or paper lantern. I quite enjoyed bringing this otherwise neglected piece back to life!
