    I made this yesterday.A bit confusing,but with the help of my N.C.(Elva),I did it.I did it a bit different when it came to the handles .I used an old rotory cutting board and I cut it and covered it for the bottom(inside) and I sewed a sleeve around it.It was fun to make!!It may not be perfect,but it sure was fun!!

    Meant to say N.C. friend....

    To me the most difficult part was the handles and getting them on straight and even with the other handles.But,practice makes perfect and I have one to make for a friend of mine on here.I know she will appreciate it.

    That is a beautiful bag. The fabric is awesome. I love that floral. So pretty. And your green is the perfect contrast fabric. Great job and thanks for sharing.

    You did a great job! The next one will be easier and you'll probably do something a little different again.... I change it up almost everytime I make one.

    Beautiful purse for spring or summer. I guess I'm going to have to break down and make one soon!

    I really like the diagonal quilting on your handles! It makes your bow tucks just a little different!
