I used hems from old jeans for the front, back and front flap.  I used the flat-felled seam for a strap and edge cut with a rotary cutter blade.  On the front is a decoratrive button closure with elastic encased in black satin.  I also stitched beads along the front flap.  The back has two pair of horseshoes embroidered in the center.  The purse is lined.  The entire purse was sewn with my Bernina 950, and the embroidery done with my Bernina 180E. I intend to make many more of these for a local crafts fair.
