Purple Protrusion Purse- Part 2

Finished purse with double-flap closure.

 


Purse with flap open for access.

 


Purse interior (no pocket).

 


Finished purse with blanket-stitching on the handle.

 


This is not a huge, 'daily needs' kind of purse...

...but was designed more for a fun night out...

...with room for a mirror, cell phone, lipstick and tissues.

Because I used both flaps for the closure...

...there's no internal pocket this time.

The double-flap design closes very tightly, though...

...and keeps things well-secured.

Instead of machine sewing the handle together like usual...

...I took the time to hand sew it with variegated white/grey/black embroidery floss.

Next time...

...more Christmas pillow covers!!

(Yeesh-will they ever stop?!?!?!)

I don't like carrying a big bag anymore. Something to hold the bare necessities is a lot easier on our shoulders too. Cute little bag. :)

Good morning buddy,

What do you mean that this isn't a "daily needs" kind of bag? I need it every day and have had more fun comments about it....It just makes people happy...Me included. It's definitely an attention getter...Everyone is so intrigued with the closure. I love it!!!!

BIg hugs,
Dawn
