My attempt to sew pattern C from Simplicity 4490 was not a rousing success...mostly because I have a problem with following instructions
Oh, and I also used the wrong interfacing material

Sucker that I am, I was persuaded by Miss_michelle
to try again. This is my attempt on pattern D from Simplicity 4490!
I didn't have time to shop for fabric, but I did find this lovely thing in my fabric stash:
Basically, pattern D is a smaller version of pattern C. Here's what I came up with:
I decided not to do the ribbon ties because I don't have the patience for ribbon ties. What I did need, was a pocket for the little bits and pieces that get thrown in my purses:
Okay, I'm happier with my 2nd attempt, but the purse still needs a little tweaking before I can use it. So here's a question for you (that is if you're still reading this!):
Since I decided not to do the ties, the middle portion of the purse tends to flop (even though I used the stiffest non-felt interfacing I could find). Any suggestions on how to remedy this?!?
