Finish It Up Friday...Yes, I Made My Purse

I've needed a new purse for a bit now.  The one I bought isn't one I'd normally even look at actually.  I picked it up at the 2nd hand store and it was the best looking.  I finally got around to sewing one!
 I bought this fun blue and yellow fabric with the express purpose of making a new purse.  I made one, but it was much to small.  That one went on to be a silent auction item at a benefit.  It however stole some of my precious yardage!
 I decided to pair it with another canvas I had in gray and white chevron.  Incidentally it is the same fabric I used for my wallet.  I wasn't even trying to be matchy-matchy!
 I put one large zippered pocket on the inside and one divided pocket on the other.  The front of the bag has the built in pocket which is perfect for keys an my phone.
I have a HUGE roll of this army surplus belt material and I decided that the green is close enough and I don't have to then construct one!!  
It is a win-win and I love it!
