    So this is the purse I made with the fabric from my fabric angel! So simple, only took a couple of hours. It's the perfect size! The only thing I need is a snap closer or something to seal the top part. But the pockets are awesome!

    There was a pattern on Better Homes and Gardens. So simple and easy! The only thing it needs is a closer at the top, and maybe stitch across the bottom of the pockets to keep things from disapearing...other than that, perfect.

    Good job. If you want a simple closure, you could just sew a small magnet in each side of the middle at the top. Or, measure 1/3 of the way in and put magnets in two places. Just small ones, nothing noticeable.

    Or, you could sew a loop into the middle of the top of one side. Sew a button on the other side.

    So it needed a snap...and I've never done them before. I added one tonight and it made the whole thing look awful. I'll still use it, but I'm not giving it away. Next time I'll know when to add the snap and it will look much better for giving away. :-) Plus side? I figured out how to use the buttonhole feature on my sewing machine! :)

    I am so sorry you "messed up" your purse. You did a great job and I am sure you will enjoy using it.
