I love this purse, do you have any type of pattern you followed??

I basically used this pattern here, except made it smaller!

I modified it a bit and didn't make the pocket.  I only made parts A, B, and C.  Then for the strap I did the 4 x's the width you want then fold in half, iron, then fold edges to center crease and sew.  It was really easy.

As for the quilting, I used a layer of batting behind the front fabric and just quilted the lines into the top (front) fabric and the batting.  Haven't figured out how i'd quilt the inside, but the only way i'm thinking would take a LOT of work!

Thank you everyone for your comments!!
