The Cheapest Purse I've bought...

Last week as i was sewing a project, an idea popped into my mind. 
With just a half hour before my local thrift store closed, i jumped up, grabbed my purse and started on a mission.
My goal: to find a leather skirt.

Bingo:

If you're reading this then hopefully you know me well enough to think "What would Chloé want with that aweful leather skirt?"
Of course it's not going to look like a skirt for much longer, about 3 hours later of wrestling with my mom's machine through the thick layers of leather, we have a finished product.
Which I am quite proud of:

The Bag is made completely from reconstructed leather items, with my brother's old belt as the strap (thanks for the sacrifice!).

I've always wanted a Chloé purse, who'd think i'd only pay $3.75? ;)

Thanks for reading!
Love, Chloé.
