Today I got in the mood to change things up a little. I altered the pattern that I had been using for the totes and made this pattern. If you'll note my previous tote pattern enlarges a little toward the bottom of the bag. In the new pattern, the bag gets slimmer toward the bottom of the purse. This makes for a smaller bag -- more purselike -- although the opening is the same width for both purses. I still have to tweak the pattern a bit, but I was happy with it for a first attempt. This photo shows the button closure, which is a little different than I've done in the past. And the last photo is just a close up of the snake skin fabric I love!
