Quilted Winter Purse, Stitch Winter '13

There is a chill in the air here in the Pacific NW.  I can't believe it is already mid October!  I've started thinking about Christmas sewing and hand made gifts.
Stitch magazine's Winter issue has been out about a week now and I have one more wintery project in the issue. 
This project would be a perfect hand made gift as well as the tea time coasters from this issue!

Each side has a large pocket that is made from strips of some of my favorite aqua fabrics. 
I have some info about them here.

I used a large vintage mother of pearl button and self fabric loop for the closure.  A self fabric covered button would also work well!

Enjoy your day!
Happy Sewing
