I found this pattern at Joann.  It's a Lazy Girl design, and I love their patterns because they're super easy.  It's about 7" by 9" and has a pocket in the back.







Thanks for looking!

Very impressive; that is one striking fabric pattern--the letters and photos are so crisp too.  Don't be surprised if, sitting on a bench or something, someone comes up to you, and not even realizing that it's a purse, asks if they can have a quick look at your newspaper!
