Little Pocket Purse

Here is a Pocket Purse made from the Noodlehead link designed by Anna Graham.

My step-by-step tutorial is HERE

Not completely happy with this as the zip was too long so doesn't sit perfectly.
I'll make a larger version, so I can fold the edges of the zip tape out of the seam allowance which gives a better finish.
I put a press stud under the button to fasten the tab and found my sewing teacher sitting on my shoulder insisting on twisted buttonhole stitch into each hole. Well it does give a very neat finish!
