Saw this fabric in the remnant bin, with the orange right next to it.  I couldn't resist and now I have my favorite purse EVER!  To heck with those storebought purses that never had enough pockets!  This one has enough pockets and can even hold a full size notebook computer!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the terrific tutorials!  I used the jordy hobo for this.  Can't see it too well in the pictures, but there are even pockets on the outside between the ribbons.

Oooo I love that fabric. I saw some at JoAnnes too but it wasn't a remnant. Hmmm maybe I should get me some of that! Great job on the purse!

I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.

Wow, that is really cool. The colors look great together. I know what you mean about Joann's, I live for the remnants. Great find.
