Finished My Purse

Here's the purse I have been working on this past few days~finished up yesterday  :)

The pattern kind of confused me at first, but once I got sewing on it, things made sense.  There's a pocket at each end on the outside.  Looking at it from the front, it is about 9" tall and 9"wide at the base.

  The zipper opening is 15".


There's velcro to hold the two ends in place. 

Side view.


Below is another beautiful digi image from Crafts and Me Stamps.
I lightly used SU! Cool Caribbean and Apricot Appeal ink and the cloud template from SU! for the sky and moon. Iridescent Copper acrylic from Golden, Peeled
Paint distress ink, Fiskars punch~which I cut away the outside to make it more lacey looking. Flowers from my stash and of course, some Silver Stickles. I just printed the words myself.  I used my lovely Copics to colour the image  :)

Side view to show the dimension.
