|(The fabric has glitter on it and is very bright and bold. I had someone ask if it was a Vera Bradley!!)|
|(Inside pocket ended up being too small to hold much of anything)|
The next one was for my sister-in-law that loves purple. I made the front pocket a little bigger, the inside pocket bigger, and the zipper is more finished, with a tab on the end. This is probably fabric I found at Joann's...I can't remember where all my fabric is from anymore!
|(Pretty purple batik fabric!)|
|(Not sure what my camera did the to the fabric colors, but you can see I lined the pocket with the lining fabric)|
|(Dark inside picture - sorry this is a few cameras ago!)|
After doing those two, I took a break from the pattern, but when I got involved in a swap for Christmas, and saw a similar purse on her Pinterest board, I decided to make one more. This time I went out of my usual color zone and picked yellow and grey (her favorite colors). The chevrons weren't too bad to align, but I did switch the direction of the pocket for that reason.
|(Not usually a fan of yellow, but this grew on me!)|
|(I left the zipper tab off of one end, so it can open wider)|
|(It needed a little something, so I made a shrinky dink zipper pull. MUSTACHE!!)|
