I just had to let all you lovelies know just how much you inspire me!

I really get frustrated when I am searching for a purse because

a) they tend to be itsy bitsy
b) i really couldn't care for the style or colour.

I never really cared to carry a purse in the past but over the last couple of years I have been. I end up with everything I own in them....Pity the fool that tries to purse snatch me Wink

Without further ado, here are some pics. (taken with a cell phone camera)

the purse

close up of the lovely dragon

and I was told to tie the coin/ medallion onto the purse with red ribbon to bring good luck and fortune

It is a simplicity pattern that I used and I fell in love with the character fabric
I lined the purse with the same rich red fabric that i used for the bow on the handle.

Thanks for letting me share this with you!

Wow that is cool. Making your own variation of an expensive purse is such a good idea. Great job.
