The seller said she found it at an estate sale.
I wonder who made it?
It is described as "Vintage dress pattern adorns this Clear Plastic Purse. Silver grommets hold the purse together. Two silver chain handles, covered with clear rubber tubes."
This idea could fit perfectly with the current theme--you could sandwich photographs under clear plastic or vinyl.
This journal quilt, Mexico Memories, by Jane LaFazio, started my interest in sewing with vinyl.

You could consider making something like this in purse form, combining sentimental photos with trinkets.
You might even use a sheer fabric, or print your photos onto sheets of organza made for the printer.
