the pattern for this purse is No. 108 The Abigail Bag. it was fairly easy to do. my non-professional, official rating of this pattern is: intermediate. (it has a lot of steps to keep track of) with that said, i think it's the cutest purse in world! i finally finished it last night and i must say that i super puffy heart L-O-V-E my new bag! i just love the material i chose (ikea).

look, close! that's a zipper back there.

love the details like the green rings

and the turn lock for the closure. OH OH OH! and the "H" i embroidered on the flap.

pockets for the inside. and what's that? yep! another zipper!

oh, and i still hate--WITH.EVERY.OUNCE.OF.MY.BEING--bias tape. i broke approximately 8 to 12 needles sewing that junk around the top of the bag.

Love that purse Holly! So impressed with all your special touches, "H", closure and pockets. But have to say most impressed with your zippers. Still haven't attempted those yet, too scary!

Fancy-shmancy! Did you use a double needle on the strap?
