I made this purse this weekend. I have a grubby old bag from Old Navy that I usually take with me when traveling. It's a good bag to haul to the beach or throw everything in while on a cruise so I don't have to return to my room for my book, my sunscreen, or to put away my camera. It's starting to get a kind of worn and I'm afraid that it's the strap is going to break where it's sewn to the body of the bag. So I found a pattern online and I made myself a new bag! This one is much sturdier, and hopefully as useful! The pattern is the "Darla Purse" from Make It and Love It.
