~Spent $5 on materials to make this purse for my sister. One hour to design and purchase materials, one hour to cut pieces, 4 hours sewing and a half hour to photograph and wrap. This is probably the most complicated purse I've made. I used my old bedazzler to stud the front strips. I used spare charms to add removable "bling". This has an inset zipper(I usually go button or magnetic clasp) and a REAL lining(I usually just double the fabric and finish seams inside). It's about 10 inches across the widest part.~

~Thanks everybody! She did love it..YES! I don't know if it's seersucker. It's a textured cotton. The little rectangles are are punched to give it a raised texture. I've thought many times of having a purse business because I'm just MAD about homemade purses. I've been sewing for about 15 years but I don't think my skills are quite good enough yet to sell. I have thought about making a ton of grocery totes to delete my stash a bit. Those might sell well.~
