Fabulous sparkly purse!

I recently found this great website called 'You Can Make This', which has tons and tons of patterns, tutorials and how tos.
I subscribed to their free newsletter and recieved a bunch of tutorials for free.
One of them was for a gorgeous Debut purse from Kimberbell kids, which I just had to try out.
Here's my finished purse:

And hanging on our gecko's tail...

I used a couple of vintage buttons I got in a big jar at a school fete last year.

What do you think?
Here's an outside shot - now that the sun's shining!

I love my new handbag - and my eldest daughter just spied it and wants one too! No doubt the younger daughter will too when she gets home!
It was pretty easy to make, and didn't use up much fabric - mainly bits from my scrap box! so I think in the upcoming school holidays that could be a new project for them!
