Spring Time Is New Purse Time!

I just created this fringed inner tube purse last Sunday. I love how it turned out!

I call it the Fringe Benefits Purse.

(The purse is not this blue. I didn’t white balance.)

I love the fringe. I’d been wanting to play around with it for some time and it works great for this bag. ┬áMade of recycled ┬átubes, this purse is super comfortable and made to be worn across your body, leaving you hands free to do whatever it is you do when you need to have all your stuff on you.

Fringe inner tube purse

It lays flat against your hip, making it easy to walk with and it doesn’t make you look fat.

It’s unlined and here are the deets, as the young kids like to say. I think. I have no idea since I don’t have kids. Word.

Details:

9 inch top opening with a 9 inch black metal zipper
14″ width at widest point, 12″ width at bottom
2 D-rings
51 inch strap

I reinforced the strap internally with recycled (oh yes, I hoard) plastic strapping for strength and now it won’t stretch which will keep your wallet, phone, lip gloss, keys, iPod, cosmetics, comb, brush, patch kit, bounce free!

This was sold on my Etsy store. Check it out! Heart me if you like it!

Update: This purse now lives in Florence, Italy!!!! I envy this purse. I sold it 2/2011 to a wonderful Italian photographer. I’m hoping she’ll send me photos of it.
