The purse sat in my sewing area for a couple of years.....
I did some scrumbling with crochet cotton that reminded me of coral.... I covered the basket with a cast off sweater ( recognize your old navy sweater, Megan?).....before attaching the covering, I used my needle felting machine to embellish it with yarn, locks and thread.
Last, I lined the bag. Done.
Asparagus, that has nothing to do with the coral reef bag.....it is just so nice to have fresh vegetables......
