Time for a new purse

My new purse, hot off the sewing machine.  I bought this wonderful linen in New York last summer from Purl.  The linen is by Kokka Echino,  and these colors were calling my name!   I searched for a pattern that would fit my 1/2 yard (the bag) and 1/2 yard (the handles).  If you look closely, they are coordinating prints. 

I used natural linen for the lining and I
used some of my scraps for the pockets. 

The grommet I choose is Metalic Camouflage by Dritz.
I thought it brought out the multiple colors in this linen.

Credit must go to this wonderful book....

Some of the pics of putting it together...

I am very happy,  now maybe a wallet?  Hmmmmm....


Love it!! Beautiful!!
