Hello all! So at christmas my sister decided that I should make her a new purse.  Tongue So I looked around for some ideas, and really liked the Fiona handbag http://henriettashandbags.com/cgi-bin/image/templates/fionahandbagpattern400.gif

So here's my take on that, with a few extra added pockets, buttons, magnetic closure, etc (on my sister's request):

Front view: 

Back view:

Inside cell and mp3 pockets (I had a better picture of this one, but after uploading it 3 times, it still wasn't anywhere to be found..) : 

Inside zipper pocket (both inside and outside zipper pockets are lined with striped fabric):


Finally to see the size, myself modeling the bag Smiley :




A new sewing machine would make a world of difference, but my mom has promised me one for my birthday (hopefully early present since that's not until July Smiley
Let me know what you all think!

Thanks everybody!  I sent the purse to my sister and she got it today - she had to call me as she was walking in from the mailbox because she was so excited!  She said she loves it and it's the perfect size, so I'm pretty happy!
