Handbag

It started with the Art Queen Pennant Purse by Cece Grimes, found in Altered Coutures issue Spring 2007. And discarded black pants.

One back pocket became the lining pocket, with some decoration:

I've used one back side of the pants as it, for the front of the bag. The bottom of one leg became the back of the back, that I kept simple.

The "feathers" are triangles cut in leftovers.

The bougainvillea is courtesy of the garden.
