After a few hours of sewing, quite a bit of cursing under my breath at the sewing machine (which is fixed now), I finally made my first purse!
The outside is a thicker canvas-like material and the lining is just a simple pink cotton fabric. I used a magnetic snap on the inside. On the outside I sewed a button but it's more for decoration to allow things to taken in/out easily. And also I know nothing about sewing button holes but that's a whole other topic.
