5 days and 3 broken needles later...

I finished my bag! Here are a few pictures of my latest purse. I loosely followed an Amy Butler pattern found in her book, In Stitches. I added height to the bag, lengthened the straps, added pockets, reinforced the bottom, and used bias tape to cover the seams instead of lining it. I am very pleased with the outcome but am not sure I would ever make it again. 5 days is excessive!
