Purse update

Here is the inside. I made a pocket with velcro to secure a checkbook. This is the front. The idea was on a blog called A Tadd More. Tammy Tadd was the original designer. I made mine out of denim and changed the size and the shapes of the flap and the purse shape.
There are times when I hold my purse up against my body because of being in a crowded place. This back was made to show that it looked like something too. Thank you Tammy for the inspiration. I stalled making it several times just because I didn't have the confidence
to complete it. It is done now.
I plan on making some Hobo purses now with flowers for the accents on them. I have tons of denim and several Family and neighbors want one. I will post when I get more made. Chris

Chris, your handbag looks fabulous! The details are wonderful. It does not look like the work of a beginner handbag maker at all. Instead, it looks very professionally done. You must keep making them...perhaps a design of your own.
Hope all is well on the home front.
