Mine...all mine!!

I just finished a purse for myself!  Yes, I know I said that the last one was for me, but I decided to gift  it to Deborah from Simply Miss Luella for her birthday!  Happy birthday Deborah!!!

This purse is made from fabric given to me by Deborah and Cindy from 'Road to California'.  Thanks guys for the great fabric bundle!!!


I made a new pattern for this purse.  I wanted something shaped just a tad different.  I accidental erased  most of the progress pictures.  But you can get the idea of how the outside of this bag was quilted.  I made the sides slanted for more room at the bottom of the purse.


I also added purse feet to the bottom of this bag.  It protects the bottom when you set it down on the floor.


At this stage, I pinned the lining down to top stitch around the top of the bag.  The zipper has not been attached as of yet.


I used a woven belting for the strap.  I had to figure out a way to enclose the ends so that they would not unravel.



There is a zipper pocket on one side of the outside....


...and a slit pocket on the other.


There are two pockets on the inside.  One zipper and the other slit.

 
I ran out of any one fabric, so the inside is also pieced!  I just love all the colors and fabrics.
 


Here she is!!!  I just love this bag.  She measures 10" high x 12" wide x 6" deep!  I'm sorry I can't tell you the manufacturer or the designer of this line.  I'm not up on all of the great designers out there.

Thank you again Deborah and Cindy!!!
