|Bonnie Bucket bag by Swoon|
It really needed a good statement purse pattern, and the Bonnie Bucket Bag by Swoon (affiliated link) is awesome for displaying the peekers. I used the 5"x7" sized pattern, and tried to estimate where I wanted it to end up. Next time I might move it slightly lower, so it's resting on the vinyl bottom, but I would need to be very exact in my measurements. I have some super cute peeker pairs that I could do one on either panel...or one on the front and one on the back for whatever mood you are in!
|Trying to get the beast centered was a challenge with the paper pattern piece. Next time, plastic template!|
|Interior slip pockets puffed out to see them a little better - didn't really help...|
|My camera only wanted to either get the black pattern or the red, never both in focus at the same time|
|It's more of a true red - the hardest color to photograph and capture the details|
|Modified the top zipper with some hand sewing because it was just a bit wavy|
