I made this a while ago and I've been using it. I recently realized that I never took pictures of the finished product, so I threw it in the wash and then took some pics.

Lessons learned:
Pockets are always worth the extra effort. More is always better.
Fray check or serged edges are a must.
Light colors are not so great.
There is such a thing as too much embroidery.

Ooohhh! It's so pretty! I don't think you did to much embroidery, and I think the little bit of fraying gives it a nice touch.

Thanks much! I did hand embroider everything on there. It's a great sized purse. It's from a pattern, but I don't know which one b/c it's a friend's pattern that I borrowed. Thanks again for all the kind words. Smiley

Definitely not too much embroidery. I looks well loved, and the size looks nice too. Hand embroidery is on my 2009 to do list, things I want to learn.

You should definitely learn it! I've been doing it for quite a while, but it's really not hard to pick up. And the projects can be a nice quick break from other things! (I think I'm a bit addicted to exclamation points!)
