I finished this one quite a while ago but I finially got the photos onto photobucket.  My computer at home is super slow and it's the only one I can load any photographs into.  So I spent a while talking with my friend on the phone while I waited for the pictures to load and here we go.  :-)  Please let me know what you think.
I will admit I did something dumb though... I forgot to put interfacing in the back and only realised it once the purse (which took me quite a long time (12 hrs) to do cuase I had to figure out where to place the birdy and how to construct him - where the clouds would go... turned the living room into a sea of fabric and children's books... blablabla).  Ouch.
But here he is... Samuel.  :-)
Here is the front:


The back:

And the inside:


Please let me know what you think :-)
Thanks guys!

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.
