So I saw LucyTortilla's Bermuda Bag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30345.0 a while back and I loved it! I was inspired to make my own bag with some changes of course! Here is my Chinese print brocade purse (with purple lining and bright orange frog closures also)! This is my first attempt at making a purse without a pattern, and I am pretty happy with it. I decided since I am not a huge fan of hot pink, that I am going to give this to my brother's girlfriend for her 21st birthday in October. I hope you like it!

This is the whole purse:

The side of the purse with orange frog closures up near the handles:

The inside, it has a huge pocket that I just sewed over in different sized sections:

I hope you all like it! Please I am not afraid to take any suggestions, comments, criticisms; by all means, feel free to offer yours.

Oh Marcy,  I love your little purse.  I'm lucky I got to see it in person & it's absolutely a cute comfortable bag. Great job Marcelline  Jelly Bean.
