Crochet and card "purse"

I've had tons of crafting ideas flying through my head lately.  I can't get them all done fast enough.  Plus everyone in my house has been sick this week. 

So, here is one of my latest projects:




I might add some more embellishments to this bag.  It can be used for holding fake flowers, small craft supplies, mini album etc.

These are the supplies that I used:

Three post cards.  I bought a pack of them at Goodwill for $0.59.  So, I used about $0.15 worth.
Black chain.  I bought two chain necklaces at Goodwill for $0.59.  So, I used about 2 cents worth of the chain.
Red pearl crochet cotton (size 5). Again, this was from Goodwill.  I think I paid $2 or $3 for the bag of crochet thread it came in.  So, I probably only used about $0.25 worth.
Black lace. Another Goodwill find.  I probably used about $0.05 worth of the lace.

So, the grand total for this project was approximately $0.47.
