    One that I'll finally use... Sew proud :)

    I finally made a purse that I will actually use. I'm very proud of it because it's exactly what I have been wanting for a long time. I could never find anything that truly suited me, so I made my own purse with a center zipper compartment. Thanks for viewing. No pattern used.

    What a wonderful purse. I love the fabric you used. I is bright, cheerful and will be fun to carry. Nice job. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    It's beautiful! Did you put elastic in the top? If you did that is absolutely genius!

    I did because I didn't want a cumbersome fastener and it's makes for quicker access at a checkout stand.

    I have a similar larger tote, purchased years ago, with dowels instead of elastic. I use it ALL the time and have copied it in smaller versions. Yours is beautiful. After seeing yours, I may try my next one with elastic. thanx for sharing.
