FO: In A Flap Purse
I made this for my good friend Jackie as a birthday present. It was really a fun knit - from Claire Crompton's Knitted Bags - it's a great book!

Best of all, Jackie really loved it -that's what it's all about!

That's pretty cool. A larger version of that would make a nice messenger bag.

Thanks everybody...I am ridiculously proud of it since it was my first foray into lining and button usage - I'm not by nature a great sewer so this is a great learning curve for me!

I agree...I'd like to make a larger bag kind of like ArtLady's large version of the Booga Bag.
