Here’s my first finished project for my new blog. I bought the handles, appliques and fabric at Walmart, on clearance for $7. The magnetic snap was salvaged from a destroyed woven purse I got for free, I also used clear, heavy weight plastic for a stabilizer for the bottom of the bag. I salvaged it from an kitchen gadget box. This is actually more than I usually spend on a gift but I think it turned out well. Next time I make this purse from my homemade pattern, I’ll sew the loops into the top seam.
