I saw a purse pattern in a magazine that a friend was getting rid of and I really liked it! It is from Australian Country Threads: Patchwork, Vol 4, No 11. Or the pattern can be found here at Magic Patch Quilting. The bag pattern is under patterns then other and it is called the carpet bag.
I have a ton of these solid handles that I pull off of used purses and have stashed away. It's so much nicer to buy a second-hand purse for $0.25 or a $1.00 and re-use the handles instead of paying $13-$20 for them! Anyways, I really liked how this purse was puffy and neat looking and thought that it would look good in batiks. I really like the way that it turned out; and, it gave me an excuse to use one of the almost 20 pairs of different sized handles I have. You could easily make this pattern wider just by decreasing the size of the pleats.
I think another purse might be in order for tomorrow perhaps :)
