Reversible purse

Well, today I finished a purse I started yesterday that I found over at Very Purple Person.  I had some material that I got free from someone getting rid of a lot of things and some I had bought to use in the spare room (obviously I haven't done that yet). 

This was the free fabric

This is the spare room fabric
I had fun making this bag and it was relatively easy.  I must admit though that I had a hard time cutting my fabric because my cutting mat is on the bed in the basement bedroom.  This is not a good cutting station at all!!  So my straps didn't exactly match up. But it all worked in the end.
Because I got the chance to trim the straps when I had to un-stitch aka rip out the seams.  She warns you in the tutorial to pay attention when you are sewing the straps because it is easy to sew them opposite in which case you don't have straps.  I was talking on the phone with my mom during this step and was so excited to finish my purse and then I realized what I did.  So frustrating but hopefully a learning event took place.
I would actually lengthen the straps to make the purse a little longer because I have a long torso and currently the purse just fits. 
I added pockets as you can tell by my cell phone peaking out and this is an added feature.  So, now what to wear so I can use my new purse?? red or blue?

Have a blessed weekend!
