In the back of the second pic here you can see the old top I had decided to upcycle to be the new purse. Sadly the zip had gone on this but I think the fabric's far too pretty to just dump it so wanted to find something to use it for.
Well, a little bit of cutting round the purse, sewing along the bottom edge and sides of the resulting rectangle then stitching the envelope thus created onto the top edge of the existing cotton 'under-purse' as neatly as poss and ta-daa!! Cost even less than the last one as no power other than my own was used in it's making and it reused the existing zip and cotton backing. (Incidentally - you're quite right and I'm sure that 'under-purse' isn't widely recognised as a descriptive term but hey - you instantly knew what I meant right?)
Not too bad for a 5am job eh? :-)
