I wanted to make my mother a purse/bag for her July birthday. She'll be 82 and has enough quilts, runners, placemats, etc - I wanted something different. I posted my 1st attempt a few weeks ago - it ended up being closer to an overnight bag than a purse for her tiny frame. So this is another try. I think I'll put a decorative button on the flap. It was supposed to have a cord and button closure, but I was concerned that it would be hard to open. this has a magnet instead.
I'm thinking of putting those two buttons on the bigger bag, but from here it looks like eyeballs! Here's where I first posted about that bag: Not a bag - a suitcase!
The pattern is "The Two Hour Tulip Purse". I'm thinking the "two hour" was a joke!
It has 2 small interior pockets and one under the flap. The idea of making the second bag part of a "set" came from this board. Thanks!
