The focal point of this handbag was wallpaper in a house here in Albuquerque. I bought a never-used piece at the estate sale and turned it into a handbag. Very sturdy, doesn't rip, glossy finish. The bag stand 17 inches tall to the top of the tortoise handles. It is 10 inches long and 5 inches wide at the widest point on the bottom. The inside is lined with a vintage sheet and the bag is trimmed with new vinyl. The base is made from two pieces of recycled corrugated plastic.
