Gathered Purse by TiffanyRay
Gathered bag tutorial
I saw this pattern over a year ago and promptly went to pick out coordinating fabric from Joann's. (I think it's the Denise Schmidt line???) I finally got around to making it! It's not perfect, but I love it. The pattern is from the Bumble Bee Bliss blog. I did add pockets, copying the way they were done in my Vera Bradley purse. I also used a magnetic snap for the closure and chose not to add ruffles to the straps... I'm really not the ruffle type of girl!!
