I know remember why I don't like to make purses! Too many pieces, too much prep work, too many layers, etc., etc., etc. By the time I finished the cutting and ironing the fleece and interfacing, I had to set all of it aside for a few weeks because I was already tired of looking at it. I did sit down and sew it last night, though, and I LOVE the end result!
I used some Anna Maria Horner Good Folks fabric that I've been hoarding for awhile now. I bought up a lot of that line when I found it half off a long time ago; and it was very hard to decide which one to use for my purse.
There are pockets galore in this bag. Three on the inside, two on the outside and .....look - there is even a cell phone pocket!
