So, after much looking and scheming on how to make my very grown-up little sister (she's 28, and a midwife) a grown-up purse, and having NEVER made a purse before, I jumped in with both feet and made her something using a piece of suede I bought years ago on ridiculous sale - 3.99$!

This is my first project made entirely because I was TOTALLY inspired by what was posted on these pages, so I wanted to show you folk what fruit your crafty sharing produces!

I created the pattern myself after reading about building bags on these pages, and I must say I am very pleased with the results.

The details:  The purse is chocolate-brown suede, two pieces.  I salvaged the magnetic clasp from a Value Village vinyl purse.  The lining is made from old curtains (clean, though!), and I used a piece of an old shoebox to stiffen the base and keep its shape.  The eyelets that go through the suede to let the lining show were kicking around from an old project.

Hope the picture loads!
