    I found a purse design that I really really loved, but wasn't able to order the pattern for it. Soooo...I reconstructed it the best I could, in my own design! This is the first purse I've made. It was not as easy as it seemed in my head. I did a WHOLE lot of stitch ripping, stabbing myself with my brand new sharp seam ripper...I really did bleed and sweat over this bag (no tears!) and there are a lot of things I'll do differently next time around (oh yes there will be a next time...some women collect shoes, I collect bags). But it's done. It's sturdy and functional. It hold my essentials. And I really do like how it turned out!

    Front of purse - those pleats were PLANNED! lol

    Back of purse - it's not as lumpy as it looks, I swear! (keys in the pocket)

    Empty inside, so you can see the pockets . See that white strip? It's the selvage. I didn't have *quite* enough fabric to cut it off. lol

    that's great...I love that you just made it up. I hate following directions and usually just use the pattern to cut out the shape and throw the directions off to the side.
