This pic is of a zipper pull that closes the stylish purse she made.
ok. here is the remarkable part, she made these out of the plastic ribbon that used to wrap around the LA Times newspapers! how awesome is she? on rainy days and sundays the colors of ribbon would change. she would save the ribbon, then tie them together, and use them as her yarn to crochet with.
after crocheting the outer shell, she would sew in a lining and zipper. finally she embroidered details. i just adore these purses.
