Messanger Bag Purse

I finished the messenger bag, 11" by 12''. There are two zippered compartments and another with a magnetic closure. The strap is a heavy nylon. There is a Swivel Snap Hook for keys. I did the quilting with gold metallic thread.

I enjoyed making this bag and can see making several of these for my nieces for Christmas. I know at least a couple of them would really like the bag. One niece (a nurses aide--trying to get her to go to nursing school) is really into purses of all kinds, probably more than shoes.

I really like this! Can I ask where you got the pattern?

I enjoy quilting too, but by the looks of your blog I'm not nearly as accomplished as you are.

The pattern and hardware come from Ghee's (http://www.ghees.com/). Would love to see your quilts. Do you know who Irma Gail Hatcher is? She lives in center Arkansas. I am no where near the quilter she is! (http://www.irmagailhatcher.com/)
