Here's a purse I made using my own pattern.


A coworker wanted me to make this for a birthday present. Here's the finished project!



The opposite interior side has spaces for cards and phone.

The only thing that bothers me about these bags are the handles. Anyone have any advice on either: how to make better handles out of vinyl (Should I switch to leather?) or where to find cheap pre-made straps? I just can't justify spending $8 per handle sorry!!

Wonderful work! My favorite part is the way the m&m's peek out from the pocket within... such a great detail!
