Do What You Love, Love What You Do

I used an old Vintage Album Plastic Sleeve to create this crafty pocket. First I added a band of paper that surrounds the bottom. 

I layered the pocket with pink lace, chocolate brown ruffled lace, ribbon with metalic gold thread, tea-dyed ruffle trim, K & Co. dressform die-cut and pin cushion. "Do what you love, love what you do" tag added to the inside of the pocket.

The flower was created from a vintage wedding dress. Layers of  irridescent sequins surround the flower, large brown vintage button completes the center.

I also Co-Hosted and participated in a Vintage Purse Swap on ALilscrapofheaven and my swap partner was Geordie GBetty138 on Youtube. I hope she likes it!

It was my first attempt using a template that the Host Patti Scrappinings on Youtube created. With Patti's guidance and tinychat I was able to make this adorable chipboard vintage inspired purse. I used the Tim Holtz Shabby Chic Paper in the Blue designs, I tore up the paper in a pleasing form and mod podged them all over the purse.

I layered the inside with a movie film strip, vintage lace trim and the outside with vintage wedding dress trims, pearls, polka dot ruffled trim and a vintage necklace finishes off the handle. I also added velcro to the closure. I could not stop at that I had to make Geordie a satin pocket that was tea-dyed and more wedding trims and of course something to go inside the pocket, so I made her a hand-made tag with the coordinating colors.
