Quilted purse, Simplicity pattern 2617. Used the green and golds with some browns. Added a lining, with a pocket on the inside. Added a key fob in the inside as well for keys, cell phone or change purse. Added some quilt stitching on the outside panels to add a little more interest. Added extra d-rings for the strap, thought it added a little as well. Sewed a few leaf cut-outs on the front, and added a metal leaf, which helps hide the magnetic snap, the leaf is sewed on but the magnetic snap also latches on to it. Used a poly fleece, which gives it a nice shape.
Several pieces of material for patchwork, (can go from lightweight cotton to heavier materials), heavy weight interface, poly fleece, lining material, magnetic snap, d-rings, swivel snap, decorative leaves optional/
