 Grin I had these two purses ordered, one of them I had to special order fabric... on the special order fabric, drapery fabric, I had such a hard time placing pattern pieces so that the flowers would be shown well..  Then construction was difficult, I think it was just me being "in a mood" anyyyywhooo here they are... Thanks for looking Grin

THANKS Addie, the pockets aren't hard at all...  I just take the main body of the bag and use that as the pattern for the pockets.  I cut two of them and fold in half, right sides together and stitch.  Turn right sides out, press and attach on lining, and stitch pockets (be sure to close the bottom of the pockets, LOL.. I forgot that once and had to rip, rip, yuck, yuck!)...  HTH Smiley  Oh, and be sure to add a couple of pockets small enough for pens and lip glosses... so very important Grin  If you have any ?'s let me know, my description is pretty vague..

cute. Love the fabrics!

Does the handles taper toward the middle?? Looks like it in the photos.

Boilerwife,

It must be the way the handles are turned in the photos.  They are the same size top to bottom, but that would be really cute, if they tapered.  Thanks for the idea Grin!
