My Mermaid's Purse was inspired by Mermaid's Treasure (see post of December 13, 2011). It is a crazy quilt evening bag measuring 3.5" by 5". It will carry a credit card, cell phone, lipstick and car keys. Perfect for that night on the town! The bag is hand embroidered and beaded with fresh water pearls and sea shells I collected on the beaches of Trinidad.
