March Artful Bag Challenge

Welcome to the March Bag Challenge. This month's challenge was to find a bag that you haven't used in a while and have fun and embillish it. This bag challenge is sponsored by Anna from Frosted Petunias.
Please check out her embellished bag as well as others.
This is the before picture of my bag. This little coin purse was an impulse buy. You know those days that we absolutly have to buy something before we leave the mall.

I added pearls from an old necklace

Vintage ivory cord.

For the finishing touch I placed a pendant from a vintage jeweled necklace,
just above the clasp.

Here is my finished coin purse.

Size is 4 inches across by 3 3/4 deep.
Inside has a zippered pouch where you can keep your money and a drivers license. It will easily fit in your pocket.

I now have to go somewhere to use it.
