Addicted to Amy Butler Downtwon Purse!

I forgot to show you the inside of the Amy Butler Downtown purse. Most people use coordinating fabrics from Amy Butler when making her purse patterns.

Of course, I am no exception. I used the full moon in Cherry red as the inside fabric on the flap of the downtown purse.
I also used a snap in place of the Velcro recommended by the Amy Butler Downtown Purse pattern.
