New Purse Pattern Tester

I have been needing a new purse for a while now.  My purse was looking so sad.  The handles were about to tear right in half, and the bottom was getting well worn.  So I had 2 choices, I could either go buy a purse quick and have life be simple, or I could design a new purse and sew it.  Well, I chose the harder path.  I couldn't resist the chance for a new purse.  And I have to tell you, I have been using this purse for at least a week now, and I keep getting so many compliments on it.  Everyone is so amazed that it is handmade!  So I am now looking for pattern testers!



I am needing 2 people to test this pattern for me.  If you would like to test this please leave me a comment below. If you would like an extra point in the drawing, please leave a comment on facebook or twitter and leave me the link to see it (I would appreciate your help in telling people about my shop).  Please leave me a way to contact you if you win!!!
Here's the deal. You get the pattern for free. I only ask that you are able to sew the bag within a week of me emailing it to you, and give me any comments or suggestions you may have.
Contest will last 2 weeks this time and end at midnight, on Wednesday, March 7th.

Hi! I saw your blog post on the SE Idaho Etsy page and thought I would check it out. Your bag is adorable! Are there any hard to find supplies I would need? I live in Rexburg so sometimes it is hard to find special items. If not, I would love to try out your pattern! You can contact me at popperandmimi at gmail dot com.

(Way too many grammatical errors in that last comment!) I sew at an intermediate level (not advanced) so if you don't think the purse is a good fit for me, just let me know!

I LOVE to make bags! SOOOO much!!! Quick ?. Where do you get the hardware for the handle? As long as it is easy enough to come by I would jump at making this pattern!!

I think both of you would be able to find the things you need for this purse really easily. Everything can be found at either Joanns, and I am pretty sure that Porters has it as well in Rexburg.
All I used were a zipper, button for the flower, and purse rings and cording for the handles.
