Rag Rug Purse

I made this purse using the rag rug technique that my friend Heather from The Patchwork Heart uses to make adorable rugs. I used muslin fabric. It is so soft and fluffy, I'm very happy the way it turned out.

I found this lamp shade at a antique store on our vacation. I had been looking for a lampshade for this lamp that goes beside my chair in my craft cottage.......I saw this one and knew it would be perfect. It's kind of stained, but I think that makes it even more interesting. The lamp was brass and I painted it the same color as the lampshade. It has that cottage look.

Such a gorgeous bag Donna and your lamp looks wonderful. I remember my Grandma used to have a very similar lamp and shade in her flat years ago but the lamp stand was dark wood and the shade was gold.
