I reviewed all the purse patterns while visiting Val and she was able to help me replace the strap of the purse I made the last time since it was a bit too skinny.
I also saw this Valerie purse by Totes by Sandy and decided to make some changes to it.
This is the fabric I chose which is Atomic by Michael Miller. Val had some coordinating fabric with dots and circles that went with the motif.
I added pockets to the outside and changed the orientation of the purse to be longer and narrower. Val helped me with the flap as it had to be redone after the purse was put together.
I had pockets on the inside as well - great purse which I carried home on the plane.
