cute gothic lolita purse project from glb
i made this purse using the steps shown on the Gothic and lolita bible, i used pink and black fabric, i recommend using a sewing machine because its a lot of sewing to do and the final result has better quality, i have many glb scans of the complete magazines i can share them on request
