Thanks, y'all!

Yes, everyone should make those purses!  They're so fun and easy.  Seriously-- I hate zippers, but the zipper on this one is the easiest ever. 

I cheated and "borrowed" one last night and showed it off a little.  It was a hit.

And pinkie_poh, thanks for the flower tut!  It's adorable.  I love thread crochet and don't mind the time it takes, but that flower is awesome and I'll have to make some the next time I need flowers!

Cool!  I made the Best of 2009 twice!   Check 'em out!

Okay your going to have to excuse me if I sound link I'm rambling I haven't had my morning coffee yet (yes I know it's late I slept in Smiley but I went to the pattern and from looking it I think if you left the bottom of the bag and the bottom of the lining open oh maybe 6 inches? You would be able to machine stitch the lining around the zipper  then pull the purse to one side and the lining to the other (picture a big goofy bow) now machine sew the bottom of the lining closed, pull the purse down around the lining, open the zipper and pull the lining out through it a bit, to get it out of your way and now you should be able to sew the bottom seam of the purse either by slip stitching or with a very tiny overlap you could top stitch it (if you choose to top stitch you should do it all along the curve of the bottom of the bag and not just the 6 inches you left open) this will make it look finished. although you might not be catching much fabric don't worry about strength because it is your lining that takes the stress and it was machine sewn. Make sense? Hope so.

I love that little flower!  And I'm not really one for embellishments, but it fits this bag just right.
Love this purse!  Thanks for posting it.

What a great new pattern!  I love the fabric for both purses and I like the flower too.  Thanks for sharing!
