I made this tiny little bag because I was sick of carrying my huge purse everywhere!  Tongue  It nicely fits my cellphone, chapstick, and my Zune.^^
Sorry if the pictures are a little blurry. Roll Eyes

This is a close up of the little embroidered corner and the cute blue buttons I used.

Here's the whole thing, closed. I left the edges of the wrist strap raw because I thought it looked nifty.

Here is the flap thing open. I did the button holes by hand. I'm terrified of my bttonhole foot on my sewing machine. Sad

This one is really blurry sorry, but I just wanted to show the inside pattern. It was on old scarf that I got used somewhere. It had a tiny stain on one corner, so I couldn't wear it.

Anyways, I hope you like it! Comments and criticism welcome!  Grin

Great job! I used to be afraid of my button holer too, but now I love it! Just play with it a bit on scraps 1st. You did a great job on the button holes, I wouldn't be able to do it by hand!

Cute!  I second the notion of playing with the zipper foot - I did a TON of buttonholes by hand until I learned to use my buttonhole foot, and now I am so in love with the foot you would not believe!  Makes life SO much easier, especially when making a button-down shirt!
