Hi I followed this tute to make the purse but made some changes as I wanted it to be reversable! http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html. I made a matching lined zipper pouch to fit my necesities in that usually roll all over my purse. I also used a tutorial from here for the wallets. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=190408.0The first one is the one I made my daughter I was anxious to take a pic so I hadn't finished it off yet. The next one is mine and my favorite fat quarter I have found finally put to good use. Comments of all kinds appreciated!

Paisley side of bag. I love this fabric and got it in the remnant bin for $2.53!!! I added yellow buttons because it really didn't have any yellow in it but I thought it needed some!


Flowered side of purse. I got this in the form of a shirt from my aunt with orange and red buttons to coordinate.


Matching lined zipper pouch. Sorry I had my junk in it so it looks kinda wonky.




To show the shape of it...


Daughter's wallet

I don't know how it happened, but when I did that tutorial for the bag, it came out much longer than everyone else's that I've seen. Yours is lovely though.  Grin

Thanks all for the kind comments! Yes I lurve magical discount bins!! I actually got it at Wal-mart the paisley fabric at least.

and for that I made my husband model the purse and I pinned it to the length I wanted. Then I finished off the strap pieces seperately and turned. Finally after turning i stitched the two pieces together and added buttons to make it look like it was buttoned together. Clear as mud water? If ya have any more questions I would love to try to help.
