|This Purse has a wonderful flap that just cries out for embellishment. |
The original design of this purse pattern has a narrow "neck" which prevents easy access to all those important purse items.
To enlarge the neck, the sides were cut straight vertically, as a tote bag. The heavy interfacing was cut along the original pattern lines. This kept the shape of the original pattern, but allowed the opening to be much larger.
However, as a result of this revision, the single strap would not work. So two straps were used and placed on either side of the flap. D-rings and clips allow the straps to be easily replaced, if necessary.
The lining of the purse only had one small pocket. I added others to improve organization.
