    the answer to my switching purses...

    Got this pattern at Hancock awhile ago. Finally got it made. It is one purse and covers to change it up. Love it!! I added the zipper tho.

    What 'cha think?

    EDITED with pattern info Simplicity # 2676

    Thanks everyone.

    Oops, it is a simplicity pattern #2676 (edited on my post).

    Yes, it is one purse and separate bottom covers.

    Cute as a button! The bottom of my purse always gets nasty so that pattern would be great for washing one bottom when you change colours. The button on outer shell also has great cubbies for things like sunglasses and keys, super!

    I think that's very clever (and I never ever carry a purse).

    Do those "pockets" on the outside then become usable, or would everything just flow straight to the bottom?

    I guess you could sew inside pockets on the removable bottoms. Maybe.

    Thank you, thank you. I am sure Simplicity will have a huge run on that pattern. Hope they still have some when they get my order. I made bow-tucks for the bazaar last year and this will be perfect for this year.
