I had so much fun with the purse challenge, that I made another one, this time for Halloween.
I am really enjoying the quick gratification project they are. :dave:

Very, very cute! :up: Everyone who sees it will want one. :up:
Is that aquarium tubing for the handles? Just wondering because I used it once for a juice-pouch purse and filled it with cording for color. It has the same look.

Thank you :bg:

Yep, Bama, you got it right- lol!
It is plastic tubing (5/16" from Home Depot); I threaded orange and black bias tape thru it.
