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.
