Plastic ice cream bucket

Purse made out of a plastic ice cream bucket.  As the interior and bottom were white and the lid rim was red it lent itself to becoming a tuxedo.  I used a glue gun to attach fabric and trims then drilled holes to attach twisted cord as a strap. I used black cotton lycra, satin faced elastic for the hinges and bow, a scrap of red satin for the cummerbund, a small piece of black belt stiffener for the tab,  a couple pieces of ruffled lace to mimic a ruffled/pleated shirt front and also put a couple pleats in the back.   I can't wait to finish another bucket of ice cream so I can make another.  I'm thinking spring/summer colors this time. I think I should win as it's a very creative way to turn something you would normally throw away into something pretty, fun and functional.
