I Love Coffee, I love Tea ... Fun Novelty Purse & Bag

Added Jun 16, 2011

Hermitage, Arkan...






Using wrappers from favorite whole bean coffees, I made my own fabric for making a one of a kind cute handbag. The packaging for whole bean coffees are wonderful. Some of the foil or Mylar packages are just too pretty to throw away. (All wrappers and coffee bags are cleaned to prevent any oils or fragrances in the fabrics).

Two Vinyl handles with rings make this purse so easy to carry on arm or in your hand.
The tie closing in the tapestry top is very convenient for easy opening and having access to your items.
Pockets on inside of purse.
Size: Approx. 10" X 10", bottom is round

Now My Little Tea Bag…..
Using wrappers from exotic and favorite teas I made my own fabric for making a very sweet and cute handbag.

The beaded handle is perfect for this sassy little bag.
Size: Approx. 8" X 9"

A fabulous way to show you care about recycle and upcycle ideas for going green.
