I made this purse for a swap recently.  

It is dark green, almost gray linen I had from another project that went bad.  I wanted a modern design on the front and was going to embroider the flowery pattern but it didn't look so great but then I came up with drawing it on with a white paint pen (much faster too!).

 I modified a purse pattern I already had, adding the flap and used a leather belt for the strap.  I really liked how the strap turned out--looks  good and is the perfect length when you carry it on your shoulder.  When I tried it on I didn't want to give it away anymore!  I also made a matching tissue holder, keychain and zipper pouch to match; and an elastic pen-holder for a cute notebook.

This is a lovely set.  I especially like  how feminine the key holder is.

That's a really great bag - I'm particularly impressed with the painted-on flower. Also, using a belt for the handle is such a cool idea. I love the accessories too. Lucky swap partner!
