Beautiful Bag Adorned With Petals and Vintage Brooch

When I saw this tutorial from Jessica at Happy Together on U create for Petals Galore, I knew I had to make one for my daughter. My version is made from a Dollar store purse, a bag of white petals, a vintage brooch and hot glue. I was so eager to start the project that I neglected to take a before picture of the purse. It's called a "skirt" purse with light blue fabric and a denim band at the top.
Starting at the bottom or the "hem" of the purse, I hot glued the petals, overlapping them slightly. I did one side of the purse first, then flipped it over. The final step was gluing a ribbon band at the top and a vintage brooch where the ends of the ribbon meet. The purse was a dollar, the bag of petals were a dollar at the thrift store, and the vintage brooch was something I had. I will be making a bunch more of these - they are so easy to make yet turn out so beautifully. I love how the petals dress up the purse. So soft and romantic and absolutely lovely. This was the perfect gift for my daughter's birthday! Check out Jessica at Happy Together - she has amazing tutorials and fantastic ideas. It turns out that we both grew up in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia! It's DIY Day at A Soft Place To Land, Talented Tuesday at My Frugal Family! and Show and Tell at Blue Cricket Design.
