Quilted Hawaiian Print Handbag

Took Chris to the airport yesterday, picking up Ryan today (he's here for the 1/2 Ironman). I had a few hours to myself and decided to work on a project I've had in mind for sometime...

I wanted the purse quilted, so picked up some lining fabric and batting and 
quilted the body of the purse and the two end panels.

Next, I cut out 2 strips of the main fabric 3"x45", sewed the ends 
together and made one continuous strap

I attached the strap to the body of the purse

Carefully, so not to catch the straps in the seam, 
I sewed the two ends together and put in a zipper

I turned the whole piece inside out and sewed the end pieces,
I even put a small pocket overlapping one end for keys or a cell phone.

The quilting took the most time, but I'm pretty happy with the final product!
