I'm sure most of you have been busy getting ready for the Christmas season, as I have also!  I've been so busy with getting my gifts made and some other major life changes, which I can't go into quite yet, that I haven't been posting as much as I'd like to.  I'm going to share one of the gifts I've been making for my daughter.  She asked for a large purse, so when I saw this pattern at I am Mama Hear Me Roar for a Tohoku bag, I knew that I had found a great purse for her.  I hope that she likes it, because I am very excited about it!It has a pleat in the front and I did the droopy bow.

I added a pocket with a larger section and a cell phone section.

 The material was from some that I had on hand.  The black, red, and white is a wool material and the top section is from a skirt that was gorgeous, but didn't look right on me.  It has a very fine pin stripe in it.  The inside of the purse is lined with the skirt lining - a satin.
 I made the handle out of the skirt belt.  I think that it turned out great and cost me nothing!

Make sure you check out all those wonderful blogs I love to hook up to in the right column!
