hello all!!!!! havent posted in a while....ive been busy working on everyone's christmas presents (im sure i will be posting when im through)...and here is one of them...this purse is for my boyfriend's mom because she rocks! anyways i used heather bailey's awesome freshcut fabric for it. it is just a simple purse pattern but the patchwork gave it something extra....you cant tell from the pics but it has nice decorative stitching on the seam lines and i serged the outside edges and decided i liked it that way... buttons on the side and the handles...i want to keep it for myself but of course I CANT!!! i hope you like it!

and here is the inside...

oh this is so cute! i love your fabric choices, both the patchwork and the punchy yellow lining. i really like the green tassel and how it ties in with a few of the patches

the shape really works with the patchwork, also. it would be hard to give this up Cheesy
