Finished purse!!

I finally finished a purse that I had been working on!! It actually turned out pretty nice, not really great but nice. I have been trying new patterns for purses to find one that I could use for making purses to sell. This one is very easy to do only a few pieces and simple to put together. I also liked my idea that I came up with of just following the fabric for an embroidery pattern.

I had the time today to cut out a purse for me in this same purse pattern, different fabric for the bottom but I will be using the same fabric for the top. I really like the vines and leaves and it was so simple to embroider. When I get it all done I will post a picture of it.
Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I have not been feeling so well lately, don't know if it is just stress or coming down with something. I had a terrible headache last night but it seemed to get better today, now I just feel yucky :(
