Christmas fabric purse

I enjoyed using my fall themed bag so well that I decided to make one out of Christmas fabric.  This one uses the same pattern as the last one, but with a few utilitarian additions.  I added a small pocket inside to keep my chapstick and nail clippers. 
 And I added a D-ring to clip my keys to, so they would be easy to find.

The D-ring is attached to a fabric strip that is then sewn into the seam that attaches the outside of the bag to the lining.  It was added at the same time as the shoulder straps and the top closure.

Cute bag! I made one that serves both as a purse as well as a bag for my walker. I promised my readers that a pattern will be available. The problem I face is when I first made mine I just started to cut and sew. I am having a very difficult time with the measuring and planning part. Wish me luck!
