I saw a fun 'redeemed from plain' denim purse
on a blog I read, Hooks and Yarns by Debra Yorston.
with cute crochet posies.
It reminded me of something similar I did.
I found a plain, ugly denim bag at a garage sale.
It still had the price tag on it.
Original price: around $15.00
I paid $2.00.
And then I went to work beautifying it.
I started with the plain little pocket...
and an appliqued rose which I purchased for around $2.00.
So now, I had spent $4.00, as all math-wizards can quickly deduce.
The rest are scraps from earlier craftiness.
Here's the pocket:
And here's the redeemed bag:
It's not crochet, but I still love it and use it often.
Some probably think it ugly still, but it's redeemed in my eyes.
A redeemed creation,
in the eyes of its creator,
is always most beautiful...
even if it is still flawed in the eyes of others.
