When I saw this pattern at the quilt show a couple of weeks ago I just had to have it (and the fabric kit it came with).   It was extremely labor intesive but I'm thrilled with the way it came out.

You can get the pattern at bellanonnaquilt.com

 Here's a picture of the inside.  The flash made the black appear gray but it was the only way to show the pockets.  The pattern calls for one pocket on each side.  I went side to side on both sides and stitched dividers for organization.  The ruffle fabrics are 5 different designs of gold metalic on black.  The divider strips are black as is the casing.  The lining is an embroidered silky/poly fabric.  It all came in the fabric kit I bought.

Thanks Barbara.  The difficulty came when I sewed the C shaped 'ruffles' to an inch and a half wide straight strip and sewing those strips together.  There were a few times when I was convinced the instructions were wrong but it turned out to be user error... LOL.  Have you ever sat and argued with a sheet of instructions?  Ha Ha ha!  It took about 12-15 hours altogether to geterdone.  Not too sure I'll be making another!

This is an awesome bag.  You say labor intensive; how long do you think it took to complete?

Oops, as I exited I saw you answered that question above mine.  It really is neat.

What an unusual purse Debbie.  Really unique!  Looks difficult.

Marge, it was definately challenging.  I used it today and discovered that it's not as big as my kitty purse that I've been using which was just about the right size for every day.  Maybe I'll just have to stop carrying so much junk around!

Debbie, I love your fabric selection, what kind of fabric did you use to make this purse. Are there any pockets in the purse........Fabulous!
