The wildlife is leaping about

You know it is the monsoon season when the ground is thick with creatures.

And now for something completely different.

Here is the before shot--an ultrasuede jacket from the 50 cent rack.
Ta daa!  My new purse for traveling.  I really like it but I wish I did not always have to carry so much stuff (I am secretly a boy scout and must be prepared for everything).  
Those front slits are actually the pockets from the jacket--I am thinking of putting buttons on them so stuff won't fall out.  What do you think?
The inside has lots of pockets and one is perfectly sized for a Moleskine.
Now I have to clean my house but I am thinking that wardrobe inspiration might be too strong to resist.

I'll have to join Vanessa with the mouth open stance. What an incredible transformation! I love the ribbon detail and the fact that you re-used the pockets. Brilliant!

That's just great. When I saw the ultrasuede jacket I couldn't imagine what you saw in it! You've got a good eye.
