Desperate for a new purse

I watched a purse at Walmart (I know! but it was so cute,) For a year, then found it dirt cheep in the clearance bin. It was the first purse I’d bought in years. I normally make my own. Well it disintegrated pretty quickly.
Last night I didn’t feel like sleeping so at 10:30 I cut out the purse. I sewed till 1am and had a blast. I found the idea at Sweet T Makes Three.

I headed out to my fabric stash and picked out everything I’d need. I used a orange thick fabric made from plastic bottles for my interfacing.

I cut the interfacing wrong the first time before noticing it was doubled over.

I used the foam insert I made for my Walmart purse. I’m in the process of making a second purse. I’m going to make the handles 2 1/2 next time because my bias tape maker has the additional head for that size. I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.

In looking for fabric I found at least 6 tapestry patterns so I see a lot of these purses in my future.
