Size: 6 1/2 x 11"
This is a cute little handbag, I made it in 2008. It was one of the first of this style I made. It has machine quilting on the inside. It's a good size for a night out.

I think this is my favorite purse. It is made out of a silk fabric. I hand beaded the outside with puca shells. The palm tree is my own design. I machine embroidered, and then added beading. The handle is made from shell-beads as well. And on the inside, I machine embroidered a wave design. I took this purse when I attended a wedding reception, how was I to know that the theme was a beach party? The bride was so impressed.
I made this purse especially for Alyssa, my daughter. She wanted it custom designed for her needs. She picked out the fabric, and decided how big she wanted it to be. There is a cell phone pocket on the side. And several other pockets on the inside. One of her friends liked it so much, that she asked me to make a purple one for her.
