Christmas Gift for my Granddaughter

A few months ago, I found some junk belts while thrifting. One of them had the cutest sun medallions. One of my granddaughters (19 years) loves Black and anything a little hippie looking. She is a Vegan, so I wouldn't dare make her anything out of Leather.

I made her a Handbag using Black Denim from a thrifted skirt. My hubby drilled holes all around one of the medallions and I added it to the front. I am super happy with how it turned out and sure hope she will like it.

I used the zipper from the skirt for the pocket on the back and added a jute pull with upcycled beads.

Then for an added personal touch, I created a special label for the inside.
