I made this purse for a swap, The pattern I use is on Craftster she redesign it from the Vera Bradley purse. It was pretty easy to do. I drew the elephant & then traced it on the fabric & then embroidery it. I love doing hand sewing. The worse thing I had trouble with was the zipper because of the fabric it had heavier threads going through the fabric & the zipper didn't like it. So next time I won't use that type of fabric for a zipper lining pocket again.  Wink So tell me what you think. Thanks


The Purse I made for the swap with the Elephant I drew & embroidery it.

Here's a up close pic of my embroidery Elephant

Inside purse with a zipper pocket & 2 open pockets & key chain holder.

The Wonder Wallet I made to match with key chain charm.

Wonder Wallet open.

This is the purse & all the things I filled it with.

I'm pretty proud of it even though I know it's not the best. What do you all think? Thanks

Great job!!  There are so many elements in this bag...the elephant, the handle, inside pockets, the matching wallet...it all looks so professional.  I love it.  It looks like it was stuffed with some awesome loot, too!!

The purse alone is gorgeous - I love the elephant design, and the handle is intriguing - is it knotted? 
All the stuff inside is pretty cool too - the little patchwork bag to the far right especially caught my eye. It looks really cute and creatively collaged. What a lucky swap partner!

Oh my gosh, Thanks for such nice comments: Deece in MN

Also: arachnes thumb, your comments I appreciate them. Yes the handle is knotted. I love to embroidery & hand sew. The patchwork bag took a long time to make but it was worth it & I like doing it. I'll be putting pics of it soon. Thanks, again.    Shocked

Thanks: scuttlebutt, I so loved the colors too!
