Pink is not a color that is generally in my vocabulary, so when Katelyn asked for a pink and black purse I wasnt sure where to begin. I wasn't even sure if I knew how to make a pink purse. I had to have my little sister come with me to Patchwork Plus to help pick out the material; as you can tell she did a great job. Even I adore it now that I have seen the finished product. The contrasting colors look so great together. This is a great multipurpose handbag because it has six pockets on the outside (each section of the flowered pattern is a separate pocket) and three interiors pockets including a zipper pocket. The style of purse is about 11" wide x 8" tall x 3" deep and I would sell it for $24.

City Tote

This moderate sized purse is really pretty because of the two toned front and back. The black and white purse features a pocket on the outside secured by a button as well as the inside ones; the green one only has interior pockets. The bottom of this bag is rounded so it has more room inside. It has one 24" strap. This bag is about 11" wide x 9" tall x 3" deep. I would sell this style for $23.

The Stripe Fan Purse

This is a fun purse because it has so many different fabrics and variations. You can have this purse with stripes on the front and a solid pattern on the back or with stripes all the way around. You can also change the order of the fabrics. This purse is also one of my favorites to make because it challenges my lack of creativity; I actually get to decide what i want the finished product to look like. This medium sized purse is rather thin but because of the wide fan shape it still holds a fair amount of stuff. The finished purse is about 13" at the widest x 8" tall and only 1 1/2" deep. I would sell this style purse for $22.
