Hey more nice comments! I really needed them because I was working on a purse handle last night that looks great on it's on and absolutely, utterly DOES NOT work for the purse I'm making it for. Boy, is that hard to accept. And I already pieced together the last bits of the fabric for that handle - plus it was made from remnants of interior designer salvage, so I won't be able to find anymore. Just have to get clever with something else entirely. And yes, I do have a stash. (That surprises you doesn't it?)

In regards to where I got the fabric, I'm not sure of the sellers name but it's really easy to google on 'Iman peacock radicchio' and it comes up on somewhere on amazon with an option of buying a half a yard.

Feel free to use the same pattern idea. Those Hot Patterns are wonderful. I bet the chances of our arriving at the same party with our matching purses is pretty slim! Isn't it funny how sewists feel we shouldn't copy each other directly? I always have that same feeling.

And Spiderlady I remember you from a long time ago, because I had made a tarantula fabric backpack (from fabric I designed and had printed at Spoonflower)

what neat fabric! I love how you made the tab look like a whole feather. Very nicely done!

@Hoagii,Thanks I really liked that feather tab idea too! I had several ideas on the best way to do it. The pattern has an optional rectangular tab. I love the magnet I put into that tab (and the bag of course) so that I can just slide it closed. I just used a strong pair of magnets from the hardware store, though I know they sell them for sewing too. Always hope I don't manage to demagnetize my iPod or cell phone as they slide past, but it hasn't happened yet :-)

It is funny that! I guess because when you make something its quite personal and its different to what everyone else has not just like buying it from a shop (I once bought a bag from primark and everytime I went out I would see someone with the same bag it got so annoying I ended up giving it away!)

As for the purse dillema.. pictures!
