Here it is as done as it will get for now. It had handles and could not find them so I will make a beading handle or make a rope with matching color one and add it on later. It also does not have a tassel at the end of the flap because it is where the binder is and can not find it. Carol Miller of quiltuniversity.com (sorry I still do not know how to make it where you can go to the site, yet) sent me the instructions so I could finished as I could not without it..thank you so much, Carol. It is pretty but a bit soft for my taste..I like a firmer purse.
Here is a view from the back. This from a class by Martine House called Silk Ridicule..you learn ribbon embroidery and of course making the purse as you go along.
