Marg Low's purse pattern shows you how to use some sweet floral stitchery designs and a metal sew-in purse frame to make yourself - or a friend - a pretty and practical pouch. Use it to carry loose change or perhaps to store special little keepsakes or even some threads and needle for your latest project.
