Sewing from a pattern

I have officially completed my first sewing project using an actual pattern. This is the first time in almost 14 years. 

The pattern is from simplicity “It’s so easy”. Believe me it WAS by no means EASY!

I hate using patterns and prefer to wing it when it comes to sewing. I am not sure why I got a bug to get a few patterns, but I have, and now I feel obligated to use them. Hopefully the next ones will be easier.

 Simplicity Pattern 2243  Bag B

I am not sure why I chose to sew a purse, but I did. Could I have bought one cheaper? Yes. The material alone was close to $20; however, I now have the satisfaction of having made my own. Satisfaction may be the only thing I have right now because I am sure I have less hair.   At least I know how the pieces go together (since I had to take them apart so many times). The next time I can use leather and make an even nicer one.
