The Butterfly Sling Purse features two exterior zipper pockets, a professional looking closure strap and a long, adjustable, cross body strap.

The surprise is on the inside! When you open just the closure strap only, you can access both a slip pocket and an internal zipper pocket, perfect for coins and bills.

The "Inside": Pop the two magnetic snaps open to reveal your ID pocket. Perfect for showing your driver's license at the post office, a bus pass, or your office ID pass.

There are two different hardware kits available at, the Heart Kit, and the Rectangle Kit. Make sure you visit the Emmaline Flickr photo group to see some gorgeous Butterfy Sling Purses for inspiration.
