The Circle Purse Evolution

Remember this circle purse?

Well, I've evolved it into my own MILITARY themed purse. I have recycled yet another bit of green BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) fabric.

I used the record as my template, which I showed you before; here. And I did a little crazy piecing work on the exterior of the bag. All the fabrics for the exterior were scraps from other projects. The fabrics are Art Gallery Fabrics Alhambra Collection and the US gov't, of course.

The bag is very slim. Definitely more of clutch than a full-on purse. It has no gussets or bottom edge piece. Its a flat circle and can hold just enough for a quick trip out. I haven't tried to fit anything other than purse essentials down in there. I did add these two large pockets inside, though. The pockets are definitely an upgrade from the previous two circle designs.

Maybe the next one will have a wide bottom edge. We shall see where the design process leads. In the meantime, I'm loving my new little camo clutch!
