Something different

I've been thinking about my Christmas shopping list today. It's going ok so far but I needed something extra for my 14 year old niece, maybe a cute little bag or purse. Had a quick look around the shops, but couldn't find anything I liked at a price I liked. Home to Google free patterns......dig through the stash......and tada!

The print is actually a nice bright purple. There's two pockets inside, and I added the wrist strap and magnetic closure (very shocked to find these in Mudgee).

The really amazing part is that I started cutting this out at 4.30pm, helped with a school assignment, cooked tea, and finished the purse by 7.30pm! It measures about 7.5" x 5", and the pattern was a free tutorial at Positively Splendid.

There is something wonderful about random surges of unplanned creativity. Maybe now I can move on from zipper pouches!
