This is my very first book purse.  Made it to wear to my cousin's wedding next month.

The book is the Sugar Queen.  I chose some of the elements based on the book. 

The red lining is from a sweater. In the book the heroine has a magical red sweater.

The story is placed in the deep south which for some reason always put me in the mind of Victorian fans and feathers, hence the sides of the purse. Grin

I added the tassel closure to the existing gold sequin closure once I realized I wasn't getting anything in the purse AND closing it at the same time  Tongue

I wish I had made one sooner. This was so incredibly easy and looks so over the top.  Finally me modeling it.
