Fairie Dust Purse – Recycle Project

By Elena Olinevich


“For my project, I found an old purse from my daughter. She liked it a lot when she was a toddler. Well now, when she is a teenager and has almost forgotten about this old bag, it was left aside for several years.



This is how it looked before.


So I made some repair and decorated it with Fairie Dust collection.


I made some fussy cutting and focused on the purple colors.


It was fun to decorate it since I thought about fairies while creating it.


I guess this purse can be used to keep the flowers or something like that.
