This is the second purse I've made with this beautiful embroidered teal fabric. Sadly, it will be my last because I have none left! So I'm going to celebrate it here. This is an "Ellen" style of purse.

I collect fabric from all over, so I often forget where it came from.

While I'm a bit sad that it's gone, I'm also excited for the two people who now own purses made from it!

You can see the other purse I made with this fabric here.

One of the very cool things about Sew Much Cuteness is that most of my items are one of a kind (OOAK). No cookie cutter stuff here!

Look at this gorgeous closeup:

How about this lining? It's a quilting cotton in natural with aqua and teal. The darker teal flowers match the exterior of the bag. 

I like the splash of "earthy" this fabric gives to this purse.

The interior has 2 slip pockets, a pen slot, a YKK zippered pocket and a magnetic snap closure. 

This bag is super roomy because I gave the bottom a 5-inch gusset. I think of this purse as a tote bag with handbag features. 

The double straps are also double-sided with both fabrics. I just think that looks neato.





Here's each side of the interior:
