Here's a cute and unique purse I got from a garage sale for a dollar. I think anybody can make one like this. If you have an old purse or tote, you can put beads, sequins or anything creative to style it. Voila, you will have your own cool customized purse.
The only thing I'm not crazy about is this has weak plastic straps. I can't put a lot of stuff in it because it will not hold. I am used to big purses and I always carry a lot of stuff. But in this one I can only put my wallet, camera, phone, and some makeup. But hey, it's just for a dollar. I should not expect anything more.
Oh I just thought of something! I'm going to look for an old belt and replace the straps on this one to make it more sturdy.
Have fun making your own customized purses and totes.
