Making Purses Again

I've finished a couple of purses in the past few days.  The first is from Butterick 5367.  This is one of my favorite patterns.  I've made this particular bag 4 times now.  The first 2 were the same with the exception of the closures and handles.  On the first bag, I dyed a vintage tassel and incorporated that into the closure. On the second bag I used a repurposed silk belt from Hawaii for the handles. 

Here's the bag I made a couple of days ago.  It's the Ashley pattern from Sew Unique Creations.  I used several fat quarters as well as a couple of half yards for this purse.  It takes a surprising amount of fabric.  I used a minute portion of my button stash for embellishing.
