The Bellagio Bag - Sort of!

Decided to make a purse using the Bellagio Bag pattern from Studio Kat Designs.  I didn't want the binding over the seams, so I put it together differently, which cause some problems with the zipper portion.  But I finally got things to behave themselves.

Circles Purse
I used some Bali Pops to piece the outer pockets (I put this on both sides, which is different from the pattern, too).  It needed something more and I remembered a design that Amanda Whitlatch did when she was making the Software Sampler Videos for Bernina. This was from Lesson 7, 2014.  I shrunk it down to fit the pocket area, but I love how it looks over the pieced strips.

Keep on Stitchin'!
