Barbie Fabric Bowls?? Well, they started off as round bowls. But along the way to the finish line they turned into handbags. Purses. I am thinking slumber bag for the larger one and going to grandma’s for the smaller one.
I would carry the larger one even knowing it was made from Barbie fabric. It’s not that obvious. Bet you wouldn’t have guessed it, if I hadn’t told you, huh?
I have a bit of hand sewing left to do on the smaller bag. Dreading it. I can’t use a thimble, my fingers won’t hold onto one. So, I have to tape my fingers to reduce pricks and that slows me down.
The larger one was a challenge. I wanted to put grommets on the sides so I could string the straps through but neither me nor hubby could get the darn thing to work. The two parts would NOT mash together and hubby is pretty strong!! I am returning it for a refund. I ended up using silver split rings. Looks ok to me. I reinforced the area so it is strong enough to hold the usual weight of a ladies purse. Strap can be carried doubled or long.
The smaller bag has two 4″ Marbella rings for handles.
It also has a pocket inside.
It doubles as a bowl to hold all those little girl things. Just fold the top down. Oh yeah, the larger bag also doubles as a tall bowl to hold all those big girl thingys.
There’s lots more Barbie fabric left. About 6 yards. Maybe I’ll make more bowls. I have an idea for a placemat and coasters. Doll size. For playing house. Or a border for a picture frame.
Lot of ideas. Just need to sit, sew and create.
