Ultrasuede Challenge

Recently, our ASG neighborhood group had a little challenge -- use thrifted Ultrasuede garments to make a purse, or bag.  One of our members had collected garments over the years, and brought some in for us to look through and purchase, if desired.  I picked out an olive green Ultrasuede Facile skirt, and also a heavier weight lime green wrap skirt.  For a grand total of $10 -- who wouldn't snap that up?

I had some scraps of Ultrasuede from another project that I added to it to come up with this small bag --

There was plenty of fabric left over, so I went with a jaunty beret --
Here's a close up of the small bow and button trim:

And there's still more left -- but that's for another day.
