Here is a new purse I made. Hope you like it.
Made with:
denim from old jeans
new toile scrap
lining made from new sheet.


front of purse

Close up of bow which are pockets as well. Bow is lined with the lining fabric I used inside and stitched down on the bottom and center of bow so it can be used as pockets.

back of purse.

inside has a zipper pocket and two open pockets on the other side.
Thanks for looking

Thanks all. Oh I forgot to mention this purse is a reproduction of a vintage purse from the 1930's. I changed up the bow a bit. The pockets are big enough and dep enough to hold an ipod phone or cigs if you smoke. It is pretty roomy inside for a small purse.
