Ok so here is the finished product. Now I am going to do a few things to it and see if I like it any better. Right now I feel that it is not tall enough nor does it close secure enough for me. I plan on taking in the sides by the handles and cutting off the tabs for the front closure and adding a button and button hole and maybe a little embellishment on the flap with a few gems or whatknot.
As always soon as I finish a purse I am itching to start another, better one. sigh.
