That is looking really good liliv-1! I like the pink stitching. Sets it off.

 I have never seen added interfacing. Are you just sewing thru the ironed on layer of interfacing or into the focus fabric too?
 
 I am rethinking my fabrics for the Sunburst bag. I can not find enough fabrics to go with the original fabric I had picked out. I think I have found another theme I will like just as much. Now I have to save up and buy more fabric.

 But I really want to destash some of what I have so I may make some smaller easier purses while I collect the materials for mine. I want to make purses for my cousins for Christmas. The way I procrastinate I should start now.
 I am thinking this pattern in green zebra for one of them...

 I made it once before a long time ago and I don't remember it being that bad. Is zebra still popular? I know I have a full yard of it somewhere deep in my fabric stash.

LOL! I have to say Chameleonhound, it was brave of you to admit you work for the Post Office. I have heard some people get mad at them on here. Brave! And I think you guys do a wonderful job. As I always say, I wouldn't drive it there for less than a buck!

Love the way the handles have the jeans on the front and the John Deer on the inside. Neat detail! Can't wait to see what else you come up with in the Craft-a-long!

texscrapper, I like your bag! For some reason I REALLY like the way you did the straps with the two fabrics. Neat idea!
and liliv-1, the bow is so lovely! I cab't wait to see how that will turn out!

 My sister's birthday is coming up and every year I try to make her a purse. I wasn't able to do it last year due to a case of laziness but this year the Purse Craft-along came around just in time to save me! I will also have to give some credit to the snow storm that kept me home from work yesterday.  Tongue

 Here is the purse I made her. She is into Edgar Allen Poe recently. I got the Nevermore fabric and this is what I came up with.
 Front of bag

and the back

 inside I added the raven to the pocket because I know she loves ravens. I also used light fabric to make it easier to find things in.

And here is the whole thing so you can see how long the handles are

 The gusset is done in the same splotchy black fabric.

 I am going to fill it up with a bunch of Poe and bat stuff for her. Not quite sure what spells and maple leaves have to do with Poe but apparently they do (?). I hope she likes it.  Embarrassed
 C&C welcome and thanks for checking it out!

me too! I did manage to rip that seam out and sew it back in. Here is the purse I made for my sisters b-day. It's not til the first week of April so I will have to wait to see if she likes it.
 Very simple easy pattern. I am slowing dipping my toe back into sewing.
Here is the front of the purse.

and here is the back

 the inside with the purse with a shot of the raven on the pocket. I always choose light colors for the inside. I think it makes it easier to find things.

 Here is the whole things so you can see how long the handles are. I can't get the picture the turn(?)


 Yay! One down!!! I never would have gotten this done without the craft-a-long. I needed the motivation! Thanks everyone!!!
