|Spring Boutique Bag - inspired by Pinterest and Sara|
and here's the back (without the flower)
I got the pattern over at the blog Tangled Happy by Sara. She has a lovely free pattern, and a couple of variations you could try on the same bag. Here is a picture of her three different purses entitled the "Granny Stripe", the "Alligator", and the "Strappy" Boutique Bags, (click the link above to the directions).

|What it looks like to make this bag starting from a sealed bottom of the purse|
I added my own flower from a book I have, and added a small pearl accent. I did a blind stitch very carefully to attach the flower to the purse (going in between the thick yard so no one could see it from the front OR from the inside. I think this turned out pretty cute! I read on the Tangled Happy site that some people used this for I phones, Nintendo DS's, and other small electronics. This is small enough to hold your phone and a set of keys, a cute little make up bad, or even a small purse for a little girl. I'd like to still try it in a number of cute colors. Stay tuned. :)
