I'm ready to get started with my purse!!!  It took me forever to decide on my fabric but here's my selection.  



Now all I gotta do is try and figure out the pattern and directions.  How are things working out for you, Miss_michelle?

Okay, here's mine.  

The exterior shell of the purse:



Close-up of one of the sides of the purse:



The modified strap (since I chose not to use ribbon):



The end result:



This was the first purse I've made using a pattern.  It was frustrating trying to decipher the instructions (was it written in English?!?).  I goofed with my choice of fusible interfacing.  Apparently, stiff interfacing does not necessarily mean felt or fleece interfacing  Roll Eyes  I think I might have to make another attempt with the right interfacing materials...
