My friend Sarah (recently reacquainted) liked my purse https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=318103.0, so she got one too. It's weird; we're both 31, but it feels like high school all over again. Anyway...

Material is, again, two pairs of thrifted pants, lining is an old shirt, hardware/zippers were harvested off a thrift store purse. I had different stuff to work with than the first one, so I changed the strap attachment, and decided to use one of the existing welt pockets (from the pants) for one side of the front. I actually purchased a small amount of green for the piping to get the right color. I was hoping to take it easy and find some pre-packaged piping to save myself some time, but just couldn't find what I wanted. I can't decide if I like hers or mine better!

Thanks for looking,
If it's Nerdy, I'll make it.

This is awesome... again. I want a tutorial so bad I can taste it!

I'm willing to do a personal swap! :-)
