Hearts & Home Handbag. I have a very hard time with straps and handles, so I cheated and used some wooden ones I had. This turned out much better than I thought. I've made a few handbags/purses (listed on here somewhere) and this by far has turned out to be the best. I made it simple with just block pieces. Not a million parts to piece together. Then I quilted the entire thing. I also added a "pleat" down each side. See pic above. That add's a little extra something special to it.
