It's so easy and fun to change purses when all you have to do is change the flap! "Mix It Up" with one base and as many flaps as you want! The base includes four inside pockets and a beaded closure that wraps around the button on the flap. Make as many flaps as you like - seasonal, holiday, just for your whim... or to use up some of that stash! They attach with Velcro onto the back of the base. I've included 4 different shapes. The finished dimensions are approximately 7.5" high by 7.5" wide by 2.5" deep.

Advanced Beginner Level (see below for list of supplies)

Included are 6 pages of instructions including a cutting matrix (everything is rectangular)and 5 photos for clarification PLUS 4 pattern pieces for additional flap shapes.
