I am smitten by this handbag. Orla Kiely fabric does that to me.
But I am even more smitten by the fact that it was made out of an Orla Kiely dishtowel, bought at Target. A dishtowel! Which means that it cost only a few dollars - instead of, say, the $400 to $700 that a real Orla bag would set you back. (If only they had Target in Canada!)
The ruffles on the bag were inspired by this dress, which I also adore. I wonder how many dishtowels it'd take to make that? Hmm...
