Zippered Backpack Purse

This purse kicked my…ahem.  Excuse me.  Let me start again.  Lovely though it is, this pattern was an exercise in patience.  And required a great deal of assistance from my mom to keep my sanity.  I’ll just say we’re glad it’s done.  Though I do think it came out pretty decent in the end (minus some unfinished edges on the inside that still bother me when I allow myself to think about them).  While I may come back to it at some point, I have shelved the pattern for now and am moving on to less confusing things!
