Arty Little Purses

Canadian artist Dale Ann Potter makes "arty little purses", and wow, are they special.
They are 6-1/2 inches square, and no two are the same.
She welcomes custom orders.

For the one pictured, she says, "I used scraps from that never ending tote, add a chiffon scarf, then quilt and embroider until I figure it's enough. I melt back some of chiffon scarf.... make it into a purse, sew on little bits I've collected on my jaunts to the thrift stores. The handle can be any length."

If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is!
Ideas like this--melting, melding, embellishing...those are the type of things I hope you consider challenging yourself with trying.
