 My Mom saw the other purses that I made and asked me to make her a purse for Mother's Day. She has never asked for a purse before so I was really excited to make her one. We went to the store and she picked out the fabrics. I thought they were very pretty. I told her I wouldn't get the zippers in on time but I did (thank you zipit zippers!) and was able to have it finished and surprise her.  Grin
 I gave it to her about an hour ago and she was surprised and really liked it.

 The wall is light blue so it makes the colors a little weird.

 Here is the outside pocket with the magnetic snaps.

Outside in the garden, liked the colors better out here.

and with the straps down...

 I already have my next bag picked out. I can't wait to do another pattern. LOL!
 Thanks for looking.  Smiley

What a beautiful purse! I've been looking for a new purse for myself and this just might be the Right One for me :-D
Would you mind sharing which pattern you used for it?

I love the fabrics too (I'm kind of a sucker for batiks)

Great gift!
