    After seeing the one posted on line here I decided to make one...I enlarged the pattern 20% and added a small flap as I did not have a magnetic snap to use...I like it a lot so now will go ahead and make one to use

    I love that!! The fabric is so cheerful and I really like that button, I think it adds a lot to the look.

    LOL well I will use it but want to get fabric I REALLY like for it..this is just a small piece I had leftover...
    I always seem to try a pattern using something I have then if I like the bag I go ahead and make one from fabrics I like better and I wanted to say the button in the pic doesn't look like it matches but it really does in life...cameras and color can be tricky

    After making the purse..I decided I'd like it a little bit stiffer so would use something like decorbond and the fleece or thin batting..I don't like a purse that is too floppy...I am going to try to open the lining and add some interfacing and see how I like that...nice to make a sample one first using scrap fabric to work out the kinks...it is a cute and fun pattern....might also increase to 125%...I did 120%
