To make this purse I started with 2 different half yards of fabric, and 1 yard of fusible pellon. I had some of all of it left over...not sure of exact measurements at the moment.
Seam allowances 1/4 inch.
Cut all pieces, and fuse pellon to all of them except: one of inner pocket, one of outer pocket, and one of outer pocket flap.
