This comic book purse is made from my own pattern. One side is a crazy blue with a comic book theme- lots of bubbles with action words, and the inside is a bright tangerine. It closes with a big reddish-orange button and loop. The purse body measures 12 inches wide by 8.5 inches high, and the pockets measure 8 inches wide by 5.5 inches high. The single strap has about a 9.5 inch drop. Fully interfaced for stability. Both the inside and outside have two pockets over the ends of the purse. There are a few stitches in the center of each pocket at the top edge to prevent gaping and keep your small items secure. This purse will sit directly under your arm if you carry it on your shoulder. It does not hang down. If it gets dirty, just throw it in the washer and dryer with your clothes! Easiest care and cleaning in the world!
