Look at these great purses made by two of my students, Ann and Allison (not my sisters, who happen to have the same names!). We're making these with Simplicity pattern 2551, using double faced, pre-quilted fabrics. They're pleated and lined with pockets and magnetic snap closures. Pretty nice, right?
These are similar but not identical. Notice that the bands and straps are different and the piping around the pockets is a different color.
