Purple is definitely my favorite color. Purse 5 is for me, and wouldn't you know that I finally got it ALL right. I figured out the bigger zippered pocket, which parts must be interfaced, and which batting I like the best. I also have Purse 1, which has a velcro closure. Purse 2 with a magnetic closure went to Paula. Purse 5 has a magnetic closure. So I'll be able to test for myself which works better.
All together it was a 6 hour project. I'll see with Purse 6 whether I can do it as nicely but in less time.
