I decided I deserved a new purse, so I made one. The pattern is "The Cross Town Carry Maggie's Bag" by Marlous Designs. I quilted the batik to Soft and Stable with metallic gold for the shell and used a cotton with a knit fusible interfacing for the lining. The button is vintage - off an old coat of my mom's from over 30 years ago. The only change I made to the pattern is that I put pockets on both sides instead of one, and I also added a tiny pocket for my scan card for the electric locks at work. I can't wait to try it out!
