What are you most proud of? HIDDEN POCKET: one interior pocket opens at the top, the other interior pocket is My Little Secret--a hidden pocket that opens near the side seam. I took 2 photos of the purse turned inside out--to show location of both pockets. The hidden pocket is marked with a little red button. You don't have to be able to see the hidden pocket to use it, just feel for the button to find it. See photo.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun making a small purse that functions well. Best wishes. --Mrs. D (Shoestring).

I really like this one! The size is perfect for that quick trip to the grocery store or running other errands. Super fabric choice, too! As always, Shoestring, you've come up with a cleverly executed little piece of construction.
