Fun Summer Purse

You all know I'm hooked on these little handles and the purses I've made to go with them.  Well, I decided to play around with the pattern.  I used the basic size of the pattern but did not make it so structured.  This latest experiment is reversible as well.  It is a first try and I will make some adjustments but let me know what you think. 
Isn't this fabric fun!!!  :-)

I told my 10 year old daughter that the gal in the red polka dot suit is me in a few years!!  LOL

You can put the bend of the purse handle on the inside or outside of the fabric.
Changes the look of the purse.  I tried this style both ways and b/c of the whimsical fabric, I liked it on the inside.  Wanna show off the cute fabric.  :-)

The pink side has a little different look b/c of exposed seams.  But I like it.  :-) 
Gonna try a different technique on this next time but I'm pleased with my first try.

If you like this purse style and the handles... go to ETSY.  Sydneykatt found handles there even cheaper than the ones I found.  And they are the same thing except you may have to wait a bit longer on shipping as sometimes they come from overseas. 

Enjoy... have a great creative day!  Quiltpecan
