Sewing again

Hi Mary and Jeni,
I have been working on this during my Tuesday quilting nights at Faye's Henhouse Quilts up in Mayville.
Finally finished a project today.
 The body is made of a laminated fabric.  Sort of like oil cloth but more flexible and softer.  I will be easy to wipe it clean if (when) it gets dirty.  I was supposed to put a magnetic snap in the pink top but I have heard lots of stories about how they pull out so I just left  it open.  The bag is 15" x 13" in size.
The yellow floral is a laminated fabric so it will just wipe off if it get dirty.
It has three pockets inside.  The lining is made of the green batik that is on the handles.  The pockets are made of the bright pink.  Two on one side and one slightly larger on the other.  This bag is called the Bella Bag by the designer, Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures.
My job today is to find some really cute buttons to replace the pins holding the straps in place.
So I am off to buy some buttons today to make the handles look really cute.  Jim thinks we are going to Fargo so I can go see my nephrologist, but I know why we are really going.

The purse with buttons.
