So my friends all decided that I would make them purses for their birthdays. Since I really enjoy sewing, this wasn't a problem. The only problem I had with this "purse" is that I thought it would be a lot smaller...the picture on the front of the pattern is misleading! And yes, I know I should have read the dimensions on the back of the pattern. Oh well. My friend loved her tote!
I added this pocket in - it wasn't part of the original pattern.
Okay so the "hand made" part is a stretch - but these tags were so cute I had to buy them!
And one last pic so you can try to get an idea of how big it is. It's big enough for a 3-ring binder and some other stuff too.
