After months of making bags for friends and family, I actually made one for myself. The inspiration is the wisteria flower that blooms everywhere in Tallahassee, FL


Front of the bag, since I tend to be so nice I embroidered my name on it so I wouldn't be tempted to give it away.

Front flap opened to show two pockets and a zipper

Inside of purse with a zipper from side to side. Divides the bag into two sections.

Back of bag with a pocket

Inside with my stuff, will be making a wallet to match, the red doesnt' go very well.

took apart an old wallet to use as a pattern for my new one. Going to make another one when I get more fabric. First ones are always a test.

The fabric inside the pocket is the same fabric I used in my purse zippered sections.

What a beautiful bag, and so well made.  I like the color combo, I have a purple and green quilt on my bed.

Hey, made the wallet to match. Some of the stitches are a little wonky, but all in all I like it.
