Hello! I've been having fun using different patterns and making purses! I need to do something with them....I have about 10 right now! I am addicted!

My mother is a butterfly fanatic and I already made her one butterfly purse. She needed a new one! I used the Lazy Girl pattern called Candice and love how it turned out! You would 'normally' use a contrast fabric on the front pocket but I used the same, the more butterflies, the happier my mother is!

I don't know if you can tell in the picture of the inside, but I used a decorative stitch on my sewing/embroidery machine in black on the top of each hot pink pocket for a punch! This purse stands on its own, has a zip top, and enough pockets to hold anything you would need!

Thanks for letting me share!

Thanks so much! I also purchased a piece of jewelry that is a lovely butterfly, meant as a pendant and used it for a zipper pull! Really made the bag! She will get this tomorrow!

Your mother will adore this.  The fabric is cheery and I like the slanted pocket idea.  The butterfly zip pull is a nice added touch.  Great bag!
