Sewing the flap.

Creating the back pocket.

Creating the lining slip pocket.  I like having a hidden pocket on the inside without a zipper.

Creating the lining zip pocket on the opposite side and finishing up the lining.

Attaching handles on the side of the bag.  The pattern called for handles on the front and the back of the bag.  I want to do just one long strap on each of the sides so I could turn the bag into a hipster.

Finishing up the front locking hardware.  I put another type of locking mechanism on the front of the bag.  I had never tried one of these locks before and I wanted to try something new.

This is my favorite finished view photo.  I really loved this marvel fabric.  I am thinking of making a matching wallet to go with this purse.  I loved altering this pattern to have the exact finished product I wanted.  I love making bags because I can make them the way I want and not have to settle for an OK bag.
