whiplash theme for november is "alt craft".
Something I really couldn´t feel related to in the first moment. I´m not alternative, and I feel deeply sorry for it, but I´m not the kind of girl who would wear a skirt made from cans of a well-known softdrink... *g*
Not that I don´t like alt crafts. There are hundreds of beautiful things, but I just don´t get the feeling... the mood... I´m too square for it, I think.
Anyway... I´m doing some christmas crafting right now and suddenly it came across my mind that what I actually did for a cousin might match into the "alternative" scheme, so I enter this purse into this month competition:
About an hour ago it still looked like a little hedgehog, but now it´s finished and ready to be a christmas present for a nice young lady with a faible for handbags and two left hands. She always asks for selfmade presents, so what might be better for her?!
This purse is made from old records - you can see the covers in the background. For those who might recognize them: It´s Roy Black and Christian Anders... (please imagine a maniac laughter at this point... I just HAD to CUT them DOWN!)
I added a small pocket for her cell phone in the lining because I know that she always seeks for her cell (must run in the family, I think... just like searching the keys)
Some of my returning visitors know that I´ve made purses like that one before - for myself, for charlotte and for my sister, but it took me until now to recognize that maybe what I do is considered "alternative" in a wider range.
Well, so I´m alternative. a bit. a tiny little bit.
Good to know - and thank you, whip up! You always make me think different and force me to find out new things.
*** EDIT on Dec., 30th: Due to somehow high interest in this bag it will be available in my shop. After seeing some copies I decided so. ***
