(please excuse the awful photo, it was late and I was angry)I used a free pattern I found here, and I also added an inside zippered pocket using my favorite tutorial (steps 12-14). And I used my last twill tape label, I guess I'll have to make more. I thought the purse needed a little something extra so I added some piping, but only had white on hand. Instead of going out and buying another color of piping I covered the white with little scraps of the inside fabric, so it coordinates perfectly. Changing the piping color was way easier than matching up the piping at the seams, does anyone have any suggestions for that? The piping never ever matches!
A lot of seam ripping later I had the finished project:
It's going to be hard to give this purse away, but at least it's going to someone I know will treat it well. I think I will make another one for myself as a summer purse. Maybe next week.
