I found this this wicker trinket box, dusty and neglected,
in a bargain bin last week on one of our vintage hunts.
I got the idea to revamp it into a cool clutch bag with just
a few easy steps...
Before. In need of a good clean.
Start of by cleaning it with a brush and some soap.
Wicker is much easier to work with while wet so I
started to cut the stand off on the underside.
Put an elastic band on the center edge and tie.
I always burn the ends of the elastic so the black
thread won't fray.
Add a paper fastener. This is the outside.
This is the inside.
Clasp finished and so is the project.
Can be used with an Hawaiian or nautical outfit.
