Margery's Place, uh, Purse!

Margery recently bought the "A Place For Everything" purse pattern and sent the photo, above, of her finished purse (well, actually, it's for her daughter).  I love it!  She wrote me, "You can just see I added a magnetic catch - I'd never used one before but it was easy - I put two extra layers of fabric behind each part to give some firmness.  Isn't the lining a perfect colour match? I was going to use a light colour (it's always dark inside handbags) but I found this in my local patchwork shop and loved it."  It really is fun to see what people have done with my patterns.  Thanks so much for sending the photo, Margery :).

Glad you like it, Lori - the outer fabric was left over from curtains I made for my daughter; when I offered to make cushions (pillows?) she said she'd prefer a bag, please. I collected a few interesting patterns, and she chose this one. My family all know that the more pockets and/or zips a bag has, the better! I enjoyed making it. Margery.
