Olive Camo Purse

What was your source for this sewing project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? This olive upholstery fabric is very stiff, and was difficult to turn right side out after construction. Although it doesn't photograph very pretty--I included a photo of the purse turned inside out to show the button marked hidden pocket and the unexpected camo lining.. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Perhaps you've noticed I've used the same basic pattern for many of my recent purses. I'm constructing them in different dimensions and fabrics. Repetition speeds the sewing process. I am getting ready for a show next month. I build two purses a day with plenty of chore time to spare. I'll keep sharing project photos--hope you don't mind the repeating design.
