Pink Union Jack purse

This little purse on the theme of the Union Jack, the British flag, is all pink ! It was a request from DD1 to be used at school and keep her dinner money.
I made it some time ago but had lost the pictures on the computer.
In real life it doesn't look so pristine any more, but is still very much loved.

I had seen things similar in the shops, so the idea is not original, and I thought I could make one myself. It proved  a little more complicated than I thought, but I've done it.

After the front panel was done, I sewed the zip together with the front, back and lining. The rest is easier, although I am not always happy with the ends of the zips. The sides go a bit round, and I don't know what to do about it.
I made it on holidays in France, and it reminds me of a lovely quiet time.

Pascale, this is just as pretty as the ones in Accessorise, and for that matter the Liberty ones at V&A; she's a lucky girl ... I don't 'do' zips at all!!!

Fabulous! I might have to steal the idea from you and make one for a friend who has just emigrated...
