This pieced patchwork purse is made from either 5 1/2" and 6 1/2" squares of coordinating cotton fabric or squares cut from your worn-out denim jeans. Several fabric squares are machine embroidered prior to assembly and strategically placed into the purse design. Grommets, leather strips, beads and store-bought handles finish the funky look. The purses measure 14" x 14" and 16" x 16" (excluding the handles) and are completely lined with two inner pockets.
