my wine box purse


My neighbors and I have a habit of giving our unconsumed food to one another when we leave. This year, when Rita left, she gave me onions and garlic and butter as well as her wine in a box.  After we finished the wine, I decided to use the box for a purse.

First I papier-mached the inside with flyers from the grocery store then covered the outside with fused plastic bags.  Some hand and machine stitching was needed for aesthetics and pragmatics.  The handle is made from crocheted shopping bags.

The name of this purse is Del Cecco as some Del Cecco pasta packaging somehow creeped in.  Thanks to my consumption of wine and pasta, I was able to make this purse!
