Bow Pleated Purse

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all had wonderful holiday weekends (American and Canadian). I finally completed a test pattern I was doing for Samantha At Home With Mrs H and you can purchase the pattern on her Etsy site.  I absolutely loved the look of this bag and couldn't wait to test it out. I love how the bow and pleat made it feel vintage.

There was the option of doing either an adjustable strap or a normal strap. I couldn't locate the adjustable strap kit at the local store here in Canada. So, next time I am in the states I will pick one or two up. There are two pockets on one side of the inner lining and a zippered pocket on the other side. I also did my first magnetic closure (not pictured).

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  I am linking up with these parties and TCB.

    When I saw the name of your blog, I thought perhaps you might still live in Brooklyn. We are having a small 'meet up' next week and was going to invite you to join in. I can understand why you would miss Brooklyn. I'm a NY'r and know the promenade area well. Must have been lovely seeing the fireworks from there!
