The purse bug has bitten! My first bag was a success, so I decided to try another one! I had a lot of "support" from Mom on the first one, so I had to try it again on my own. I am happy with them. The red/cream was first. The purple "suede" bag has the addition of an inside pocket and will be great for fall! I am learning a lot about sewing and having a bit of fun while doing it!
