  • Advertisement

  • scraps of narrow ribbon
  • kitchen shears

  3. Fold over lid of purse as shown in diagram 2.
  4. Cut 2 slits in front of purse to hold closing tab.
  5. Overlap handles at the top and cut two narrow slits in each end.

What a great idea! What kind of detergent is it? Dish? Laundry?
