Alot of people have done this purse, it is really quite fun (I got the idea from a blog). I used fatquarters I have had forever in blue,purples, and lavenders. It has an inner zipper pocket ( I love making them ) and a key leash. I also made a lipgloss holder ( from a tute on here of course ) and 3 roly nesters ( they fit inside each other ) from another blog ( thanks for the link from another craftster of course! ). I hope the recipient likes it. ** I also used charms on all the zipper pulls** front
Gorgeous fabric and I love the style of the bag - especially the inside pocket lining. I haven't tried this myself (I personally don't like pockets in bags as I find they sag the lining - not that I ever use them even when I have previously bought bags) but do have a tutorial for doing this.
I will endeavour to search for similar fabric.
Great work! .

The pocket is made from one piece and its attached in the seam at the top of the bag so it never sags. When I make another tote I will take pictures for you...
I love that material! It's fantastic! Where did you get it?
Well when Walmart use to sell fabric they had a bolt of this on the dollar a yard table. I was told it was mispriced because its quilter quality cotton, but I made them sell me 6 yards of it anyway. I still have 4 yards of it left.
That totally looks like Hogwarts! Awesome job on the bag
Thank you, thats what I was going for! She and my daughter went to the lastest release thing and were one of the 1st to get the books, it was like they won the frigging lottery or something. I am ashamed to say I haven't read any of the books or seen any of the movies..
A rush birthday tote, for a fan of all things mythical. Next time I will make the closure tab longer. The pattern is a simple one I drafted and its my standard omg I need a gift tote fast pattern. I just got ambitious for the closure and mismeasured. Made with fabric, warm and natural batting and canvas for a liner. the handles also have batting and are quilted. I will fill it with a few books and some smelly girl stuff, like lotions. front
