Hey Guys!! I made a pattern today and was wondering if I made all the right pieces....

It is going to be a purse.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... as I am a beginner sewer....

looks good. are you adding the seam allowances when you cut out your fabric?

just a reminder to put in seam allowances, otherwise it will be difficult to get the shape you want out of your handle, and another suggestion would be to make the handle and the purse two seperate pieces, like so_

 l     _____     l
 l__/        \___l

 l                  l
 l                  l
 l                  l

and then sew them together when you are sewing in the lining. 
hope this helps! and if you have any q's about my suggestions, pm me!
