Rock Star Purse!

So, my Nana and I got together and made this super cute purse! To start off with, I gathered some pink and black material. I cut out 6 pieces of the purse sides. They were the same size. I also cut out two pieces of interfacing to match these sides. Next, I cut out two identical oval bottoms. I made two like interfacing pieces. Then, I ironed on all the pieces of the interfacing to the pieces of fabric. Of course, you iron it to the "wrong" side. 
 Then, I ironed the two sides of the purse together. You put the wrong sides together.
Then, you put the facing of the bag (the extra two pieces) pinned to the newly sewn bag. You sew the handles and top part of the bag together. This will hold everything in place. 
 Last, you want to flip the purse right side out. Take the bottom pieces and sew them together with wrong sides together. Then, take the bottom piece of the purse and pin it to the bottom of the bag. Last, sew it on! Your cute little rockstar purse is complete! haha

 Please excuse this last picture. I look a HOT mess. I'd been cleaning and crafting all day!
