dishcloth purse

We got these pretty dishcloths in at work the other day.
so you know what I was thinking??
nope, not doing the piles of dishes on the counter
That would just be silly!!

I was thinking what a nice bright summery purse they would make!!
I needed 4 clothes
I folded 3 in half to form a triangle, and the 4th was for the handle.
2 nights of sewing
and ta da.
new summer purse!!

Total cost for the bag was:
4 dishcloths @ $1 each
1 button from stash
liner material from stash
1 snap
yeppers... a good stash buster at a total of $4!!!
tell me what you think..
