Here is how it came out:
It is okay....but not so PRETTY!! I promise my pleats looked much better before I started sewing it into the shape of the bag. The bottom of the bag calls for mitering the corners as you are sewing around.....I AM NOT GOOD AT THIS!!! I had to pull out the seam ripper quite a few times and finally gave in to mediocrity...really it didn't take that much, it has been one of those weeks!! Maybe if I would have remembered that Carrie changed the way she did the bottom of the purse, I would have gone with that idea and ended up with nicer pleats!!
But I REALLY like how the inside turned out! I love all of the pockets going around the bag! I didn't make them too big, so I only added a velcro closure to the biggest pocket. And it was my first time using a magnetic snap! So easy...I somehow expected it to be more involved! My husband saw it and said, "oooohh, fancy!" He's so funny! :)
So, there you have it...my version of the Pretty, Pleated Purse! Hopefully the next time I make it, it will actually be pretty! Until later...
