Just Made A New Purse!

 I made this new purse.  This was the first time I tried a purse like this.  I made a few changes.  I made strips of several different fabrics. I just sewed them together to make my material.  Then I cut out the pattern.  After I had the purse finished, I realized, I should of put in a magnetic closure. Duh!!  Nothing was mentioned in the pattern, but I should of picked up on that.  I then added the tie straps, so I could tie the purse closed.   Actually the purse is deep enough that I don't think anything would fall out but I just wanted to be sure.  Sometimes I give them a sling into the backseat of my car when I am driving.   I added antique buttons to the end of the ties.  This is a Kwik Sew Pattern # 3171.  You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.
