Before & After.....Wristlet
Today is going to be a quickie post because I need to get to bed early tonight! Tomorrow night is Grad Bash at Universal Studios for Florida's graduating Class of 2013!
You may remember me mentioning my son, Dakota is a high school senior! I am also his class sponsor, so I will be attending as a chaperone. Luckily my hubby will be going also so I have someone to hang out with. Anywho.....that leads me to the reason for this post. I don't want to take a purse or bag tomorrow night, however, I do need to take something for my phone, ChapStick, ibuprofen (if needed), and some money! I decided to take one of these cute little wristlets I had on hand, redo it, and make it cute! I bought 4 of these at a yard sale for fifty cents each a couple weeks ago. I'm glad now I did! Here is what it looked like before.....
They have the logo for the Hook Up product line on them, but I knew this could easily be covered. The little bags are made from a heavy duty canvas and are very well constructed. I wish there had been more of them for that price! Here is what I did with it!
Not bad for fifty cent! I already had the felt, beads, and buttons on hand so no cost for those! The buttons are vintage from my grandpa's old button jar...:)
Here you can see my iPhone in it. There is plenty of room for my necessities, but it's not too big to carry around all night...:)
I found the tutorial for making the flowers at The Crafted Sparrow. Go check her out! They were so simple to make, I was done with the whole process in under an hour...:) Well, I better get off here and head to bed....tomorrow night is going to be a long night since we aren't expected to get back until early Saturday morning. I'm getting too old for this....LOL! Pray for me, that I can stay up all night!
I'm linking up with Diann for Thrifty Things Friday....
Go check it out!
Until next time..
