Default Purse for a friend

I wanted to get a cross body purse in purple for my best friend's birthday, but could not find one that I liked, so I decided to make one. This is the result.
It has a cork slip pocket on one side, a zipper pocket on the other and a zipper pocket on each side inside with 8 credit card slots on one side. The strap is long enough to go over her head and across her body, which is how she likes to wear her purse and purple is her favourite colour.
This is the second purse I've made and I quite enjoy them as long as there is a video to follow.

I used to make a lot of purses or crossbody bags. I need to make me a new one now. Love this one you’ve done an excellent job.

Love the purse and I am sure your friend will also! Cork adds wonderful texture with the fabric. Pockets on inside will be useful.

WOW, very professional looking. It is certainly better than any you could have found too. She will love it.
