    I bought a simple purse at a quilt show this spring. It is basically a 6X8 inch sleeve with a long shoulder strap. Lined, but not interlined (no fleece).

    The exterior fabric had lots of very small scraps (1/2 inch by 1 inch) under a mesh on both sides with some 1/2 beads on one side too.

    No closure on the top.

    It is a lovely small bag and I paid all of $10.00 for it. It was a steal. There were other bags in a similar style with closures and some had a pocket on the inside for $5-10 more depending on the details.

    I commented when I paid that it was under priced. Yes, it was a simple design, but there was the lining, outer fabric, scraps, mesh and beads, plus the time involved in making it.
