I finished my purse yesterday, except for one little detail. I still want to embroider a little skull on the front. I'm going out to dinner tomorrow so I'll try to do it before then. I made a few mistakes and learned a lot while making this purse. Luckily, the mistakes I made were ones that affect the appearance only and shouldn't be problems structurally. That won't matter much since I'm keeping this one for myself but now I know a few things to pay attention to when I make one for someone else. Here's how it turned out!
As you can see, all my stuff fits perfectly which is good because the lack of extra room will keep me from amassing more and more stuff as I go along! The red zippered bag holds a diaper, wipes, powder, and a brush for my son. Then I have my wallet, cell phone, sunglasses, a ton of pictures, two sets of keys (OCD dictates that they be separated by frequency of use), my Buffy the Vampire Slayer pocket mirror, some Aquafina lip balm, a hair clip and hair bands, a picture my son drew to give to my dad tomorrow, tissues, a few important papers, guitar pick, Visene, two pens because for some reason I always end up with more than one, and some Hot Wheels cars to keep my son busy at restaurants. How did I get all that stuff in there?
EDIT: I found another picture that shows the lining better.
