Last Spring, I was at a Farmer's Market on the Outer Banks and met a lady who makes purses out of discarded neckties. I was so impressed at her sewing skills and wonderful color coordination. Recently I had her make one for me and it is absolutely beautiful! My new purse has several pockets on the inside and a generous size pocket on the back. I love seeing things recycled and I'm so glad these beautiful pieces of fabric are taking on a new life. I'm looking forward to going someplace nice enough to use it!
