I did make a few modifications to her pattern. I did not whip the pieces together with yarn but hand stitched the seams with upholstery thread. I also used purchased handles rather than making them from wool. I was very happy with the results.

This spring our local rug guild decided to add some dimensionality to our lives. We took on a purse project. It was designed by Susan Quicksall of Holly Hill Designs. She has some really great designs. I chose to hook my purse with a red background. I had a bunch of leftover reds from another project that I wanted to use up. The motifs were also leftovers. Here's my finished bag, front and back.
