My Creative Space.

Last week in one of our local op shops I saw this little girls skirt with cute ruffles along the bottom for $2, I knew instantly what I could do with it!
Two totally useful and very pretty little coin purses.
I lined them with some really bright and fun fabric so when they were zipped open there would be a little surprise!
Megan claimed one the second she saw them, hers will probably be used for all sorts of things not just for coins, I can see she she'll probably stash rocks or some other little treasure she found in it!
I you want so see some more creative spaces this week head on over to kootoyoo and say hello to Kirsty.
Hope you are having a totally creative day!

The purses look so sweet I can understand why your little one claimed one for herself. I really love the colours too.:)

Great photo's of an excellent idea! A perfect example of what happens when imagination meets opportunity (shop that is!) You could use this idea in so many ways, thanks for the inspiration xo

You, my dear, are a marvel!!! I always LOVE seeing what you've been up to. Your little doll's quilt is fantastic too! That's my next skill to learn. Just need to find myself a few more hours in the day :)

I was wondering what you were going to do with that skirt. What a great idea!! I'm not surprised your daughter grabbed one. They are made for little girls to store treasures in!
