Q&A with Deena

Deena asked:
I combined 2 patterns together to make this handbag. First, I used The see & sew pattern # B4271 (Butterick) - view A - instead of the "belting, I used webbing in the handles. I also incorporated a pattern for a wallet - a tutorial from <<that*darn*kat - and on the large zippered inside pocket I placed the section for the 8 credit card slots and 2 extra compartments - for checkbook and cash. It has 2 roomy compartments and 2 zippered pockets - one large (~12 ") and one small (~7"). I added a BONUS - a removeable zippered change purse.
