Unless there already is a tutorial for this kind of purse, here's a description.
- three types of fabric, one for the pocket, one for the two inside-pieces and one for the two outside-pieces.
- A zipper for the pocket.
- Magnet button.
- Binding or a ribbon to hide the seams (not neccesary if you sow the seams on the inside, but that is a lot more work, I find)
Cut out two insides and two outsides, and a pocket. Sow the zipper to one of the insides, and sow the pocket-piece to the back of it. Attach the button. Put it all together by sowing one inside and one outside together along the edges, then sow together with the other inside-outside-pair leaving the handles free. Binding where the seems are, and voila! New purse
