ABSTRACT
The article describes a smart handbag created from an antique doily found in a thrift shop. Sarah Stone, its creator fused the doily to a piece of cream-colored wool felt and cut a rectangular shape from the combined fabric and trimmed off the felt along the scallop edge of the doily. The fabric is then folded with right sides facing and turned the bag right side up. The handles and the tie closure were made from silk stiffened with felt for stability.
