Pattern Description:

A purse should show your personality! You pick your colors, you pick the style and now you can pick your image. Use the image I provided in my pdf or change it to make it your own! Just remember to make it fun!

The pattern for this purse is a modification of the purse I carry and the inspiration for my store name...because it is just ARTRAGEOUS! Women point it out to their friends when I go shopping and even have their husbands look at my purse. (I'm sure they are impressed! :-) People even start conversations with me in the middle of stores. One woman drug me into the back room to see the project she was working on...a quilt for her son who was getting married. Kindred spirits are everywhere.

Don't let the applique scare you away. It is as simple as cutting out paperdolls and gluing them in place.

Not only does it catch the eye of people it is a purse with many pluses. Diagonal pockets on the back are both functional and pretty. A hidden pocket is under the front flap and even a key clasp hangs in a convenient place inside to hang your keys.
