Your job, should you decide to accept it, is to take a container that wasn't a purse and make it into a purse/tote. There are ideas for cereal box purses and knitted plastic bag totes on the web just to name a few. How about a purse from a book or a game board.There are no size requirements. Just don't use fabric. See what you can do. Remember to send on time and that we are all different. It should just be fun to see what you can come up with. Use your imagination. Send what you would want to carry. Start right now. This is going to be a challenge for some so don't wait to get partners and see their profile, unless you feel really confident.Post picture when you're finished.Send on time for hearts and if life happens inform your partner.

No fabric :-( I had an idea to use a lacy bra .. http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf29444183.tip.html

Oooh, Sign me up... I've got some ideas. I see I'd better not waste any time though! So much fun.

Ohh I want to see that bra. Technically isn't the bra a lot of elastic stuff and not fabric well a little. Well there's some fabric, but it is a container. Rationalizing here. I say go for it.Brenda

I've made mine! it's made from cute packing tape and a plastic shopper... I want to keep it!!! www.ninaribenamakes.blogspot.com

LOL!! If they (the bra) are working correctly they are indeed "containers"

Let's also say if we line the purse then fabric is an option. As long as fabric isn't the main component I think it would be acceptable to your partner. Brenda

I found these neat picture frames, so I'm going to call them "containers" for pictures. I hope my partner likes it!
