Artful bag/ february

12"x 12" fold over clutch
I gave my DH a gift 1 year for christmas, "bacon of the month club"!
I just knew that the bags were worth saving for some altered art project. So I saved a couple.
Little did I know that 1 would become a purse!

The lyric, "I can bring home the bacon..." comes to mind when seeing what you used for your purse. This is awesome. At first glance I thought you somehow turned the old fashioned popcorn pan things into one. I really like the simplicity of it. :)

Faith, trust, and faerie dust!

Very creative, nicely done, love the size and shape. Original. I wouldn't mind carring this on for real.
Thank you for your comment.

Hi Peggy! The name of your bag alone already made me smile. I love your bacon bag! The texture and shine give it a very chic feel and I just love the gold chain with the beads against the silver. Even the simple button with the word 'parts' is perfect...the color and type of font is just right (I even love the background you set it against!)Thank you for sharing and playing this month. :)

And congratulations on being in WWC! I just picked it up the other day and saw you in there. It was great to see your creative space.

How clever, Peggy! I'm glad you found a beautiful use for the containers. I just got reprimanded this morning for saving containers in case some art project needed them.

Very creative! Two of my favorite things combined: BACON and BAGS! Pretty sure it can't get better!

What a clever and original idea for this challenge! And the finished product is so ELEGANT! Never would I have thought of using the word bacon and bag and thinking elegant- but seriously, yours is. I love it!
