1. Create a row of connecting blocks in a rectangle that measures about 8” x 6” or desired size. Use Liquid Fusion to glue on each layer of blocks to form purse, adding thin sections along top edge as shown. Let dry.
2. Use felt pen to trace peace sign pattern onto shiny side of shelf paper. To create stencil, cut around inner edge of design leaving outside edges intact, then cut out separate sections as indicated on pattern. Peel off paper backing then press in place on side of purse as shown then adding inner pieces to create design. Run a fingernail along inside cut edges to prevent seepage.
3. Squeeze a puddle of Black Slick paint onto foil. Use knife to “frost” within stencil design leaving a smooth even surface. Carefully peel off stencil and inner pieces then let dry. Any wet paint can be wiped off with damp paper towel if needed.
4. To create base of purse, place on foam board then trace around. Use craft knife to carefully cut out.
5. The base is covered in black fabric. Cut piece from black t-shirt larger than base. Place foam board on wrong side of fabric then add a thin bead of Liquid Fusion around edge of foam board. Pull up fabric, folding in corners and adding more adhesive if needed. Hold with masking tape if needed till dry.
6. Cut another piece of fabric slightly smaller than base and cut out. Glue this in place to cover cut edges. Let dry.
7. Apply Liquid Fusion to bottom edges of connecting blocks, press on base lining up edges. Place something heavy – books, food cans etc on top till dry.
8. To create handle, buckle two belts together. Place purse on inside of belt ring adjusting as needed. Apply an even coat of Liquid Fusion to belt then press in place against purse, holding with pieces of tape till dry.
9. Cut circles of cardstock to fit inside bottle cap. Add letter of Black Slick paint to each. Let dry then glue inside each cap. Place purse on side then glue bottles caps where shown and let dry.
10. Squeeze a small puddle of Liquid Fusion onto foil. Working in short sections at a time, use tooth pick to add small equally spaced dots along outside of peace sign. Use tweezers to add a crystal then press to secure. Let dry.
11. To create black bag for inside purse start by lining up hem edges of shirt with right sides together. Measure and cut a 9” x 12” rectangle. Sew along three sides starting just under hem edge on one side and leaving hem edge open. Turn inside out. Attach safety pin to one end of ribbon, insert into hem and work to other end gathering fabric along the way. Tie knot and trim ends. Place inside purse.

Who cares how heavy the bag is hehehe, This looks amazing , My bag is not made ​​out of Lego but heavy as ... ;)
Ahhhhh why did I loose all my legos whyyyyy.
Because you were tired of stepping on them in the middle of the night? ;-P
No, I didn't get rid of them I lost them. We moved and somewhere in there all my legos were misplaces T.T

I wonder if you could divide this into separate steps? It looks very cool and I'd love to make one, but my brain doesn't like seeing it all as one step and few pictures.

This is so cool. What if you made a wallet...
Add some transparent bricks and LED's, maybe some Technics lego and you can have a bag that transforms into a wallet!
Yeah!

I'm wondering wether it is comfortable to wear, is it?
Ladies carry their purses not wear them.
Just treading on a Lego brick is painful enough, so this would make a great Anti-mugger bag too! One swipe round the noggin with it will render any mugger unconscious in seconds..
Interesting instructable! ツ
You are right! I could so see someone getting knocked out. Hopefully no innocent bystanders. It is super cute and a great instructable! Kudos!
That is so pretty! I would love to get one! But they look so hard to make.

If you use a strong glue why not make the bottom legos too.
