Patriotic Purse

I made a new purse for one of my fellow Air Force wives. This is a heavily modified version of the Bow Tucks pattern by Quilts Illustrated. I increased the height and width, narrowed the depth, changed the pocket width and height, widened the straps, and made them longer, widened the ties on the sides, and custom sized all the interior pockets to fit her specific items (cell phone, ipod, etc). I also removed one layer of the batting to make it lighter weight. The quilting is straight diagonal lines across the body of the bag, and freemotion "America" on the front pocket.
