I so love this purse, I cant wait for Around The Bobbin to release a matching wallet pattern, so I can make it too. I used vinyl and decor fabric, and used a decorative stitch on my purse too. This pattern can be done by a beginner sewist if you take time to go through every step slowly. This is only my 4 purse I have ever made and it is by far my favorite. It has 3 pockets and 1 zippered pocket. I also has a removable strap. This is a must for a night out or a quick run to the store.
