New Purse Design

Phew!  It took me maybe three weeks to do this bag because I was ill for two weeks, but I finally got it done!  My inspiration for this bag came from this purse. I had someone who loved it, but I just didn't think it was quite right for her, so I came up with this one instead:

The Front

This purse had a few firsts for me as well!
First Zipper!  Not too bad!

Three extra pockets

I am so proud of my first zipper I have to show it twice!

The Back

My first time doing feet...there is a learning curve to these things, lol

So in hindsight, I would not use cotton batting again!  The layers were just too much.  I know you can't really see it in the pictures, but this purse is kinda cuddly with all that fluff, lol.  I had used it with success in other bags, but not so much with this one.
I would definitely do the feet before sewing the bottom on, after is not the time to do it, lol.

And just because two of my grandchildren were in the room while I was taking pictures:



So that's it!  What do you think?  I am looking forward to starting a new project tomorrow!  Be back soon!
