take 2

I like this one a whole lot
I added an extra layer of fabric and interfacing
to the upper outer pieces
on top of all the other changes I planned to make

The picture really doesn't do it justice.
I have to say
this is my most professional looking piece
Ton' says part of that is because it's (partly) designer fabric.

I'd actually forgotten I ordered it.
I saw a purse
well over a year ago
on some blog (no clue which one!)
and I really liked the style and I'd ordered
a tiny bit of the teal plume and some fortune zinnia
to make one kinda like it.

I was hoping that the oranges would go well together.
They were, after all, both by Anna Maria Horner
so it was a logical thing to hope for.
They didn't.
I have about 1/3 of a yard of that gorgeous Good Folks fabric
still sitting in my cabinet.

While the size of this one will work great for me
- with plenty of room for my huge wallet -
I think it may be a bit big for young ladies.
I think somewhere between 25% bigger
and the original ought to be just perfect.
