I also got a wonderful free purse pattern from Craftsy. I need a large purse to carry my iPad in and I have had this wonderful piece of purple drapery fabric hanging around for a year or so waiting to become a purse. Here are pics of the finished bag. I added pockets inside, a stiff base in the bottom, and pleats in the front and back. It was a little too large but the pleats were just the trick. The ornaments in the center front and back are again from our trip to NYC. The buttons on the Straps were in a button tin gifted to me by Mrs. Youngman, my SIL's Mother. They were very tarnished to the point I didn't know what color the metal was. But a little patina and gilders paste and they are Perfect! Now to go out and it give a test drive!
