A couple of months ago, I made a purse for myself. It was nearly perfect - a zipper pocket here, a different fabric content there and it would have been the best!
But nearly perfect is not good enough. I could have handled the no zipper pocket issue, but the premature wear on the fabric re-e-e-e-eally bothered me.
The solution? Write the first one off as a learning experience and make another one. I added a zipper pocket, a floral flap closure, did some resizing and this how it looks.
I'll give this a trial run. Sometimes it's nice to be the guinea pig.
