'Wizard of Oz' altered hand bag

Check out my new 'altered' hand's was both fun and easy!
When I found this purse at the new antique mall in Delano Square, I really liked the fabric photo and came up with an idea to alter it. The beads dangling and fluffy stuff had to quickly removed....not my style! My idea was to use some of the pretty yo yo's I had on hand. Don't pretty little fabric O's make you smile?
Carefully I laid out the exact number of pretty yo yos that were needed to cover the top of each side. As you may notice, I did the second row in reverse so that the colors would go all the way around.
The next step took me the longest. I dug deep in my old button tin and picked out the prettiest red buttons I could find. Carefully I sewed one on each of the yo yos.
The 'P' trinket prettied up the front yo yo along with the lace and a heart bling.
Carefully I attached each yo yo onto the top of each side of my hand bag with my 'very hot' glue gun. The little red ruby slippers are the cutest. They didn't fit any of our grand daughters or me so they took 1st step...1st place in my Wizard of Oz collection of stuff.
As you can see...I'm having fun.
