 My sister's birthday is coming up and every year I try to make her a purse. I wasn't able to do it last year due to a case of laziness but this year the Purse Craft-along came around just in time to save me! I will also have to give some credit to the snow storm that kept me home from work yesterday.  Tongue

 Here is the purse I made her. She is into Edgar Allen Poe recently. I got the Nevermore fabric and this is what I came up with.
 Front of bag

and the back

 inside I added the raven to the pocket because I know she loves ravens. I also used light fabric to make it easier to find things in.

And here is the whole thing so you can see how long the handles are

 The gusset is done in the same splotchy black fabric.

 I am going to fill it up with a bunch of Poe and bat stuff for her. Not quite sure what spells and maple leaves have to do with Poe but apparently they do (?). I hope she likes it.  Embarrassed
 C&C welcome and thanks for checking it out!

Your sister may get a new bag every other year only, but if all are that well done, she probably won't mind.

My sister's birthday is coming up and every year I try to make her a purse. I wasn't able to do it last year due to a case of laziness 

That is really a great gift...and I'm still laughing at the admission of laziness instead of making up a fancy sounding excuse  Cheesy Cheesy

LOVE the fabric you chose. I need more fabric like I need another hole in my head, but your purse has convinced me I have room for at least one more. . .  I just ordered a yard of this and another from the Nevermore collection. . .
