Pi is an accessory girl. She always has been, since she was teeny! And when we were packing for our trip to Europe earlier this year, she had some serious hopes for taking the cutest outfits with alltheaccessories. Since we were taking a total of two suitcases for a month long trip for five people (including a baby, whose travel crib and other baby stuff basically commandeered one whole suitcase), our available accessory space was limited at best.
To make these purses, I added snaps to the center of two neutral purses (the strong magnetic snaps). I made a couple of little slits with a razor blade for the prongs and then set the magnet in place.
-one scarf (also in coordinating fabric- this one didn’t have a snap, we just tied it onto the purse handle)
-a couple felt flowers
-a felt heart
-a giant pompom in Ravenclaw colors (I didn’t take nearly enough pictures of all of our Harry Potter touring, but the Ravenclaw pompom was positively worn out at the end of the trip!)
ps- Even though most of my pics are of the straw purse, she totally used the brown bucket purse as well. 😉 Picture proof:
