I wouldn't mind seeing some zippered pouches. I used to make them all the time and it's neat to see all the different ways people make them!
So, In order to make the Sunburst Sling I am going to have to coordinate a LOT of fabric, so in the meantime I decided to start a more simple purse for my sister of her birthday in April. Ever since I did the "make a purse and fill it" swap I love the idea for gift giving! My sister is currently on a big Edgar Allen Poe kick. I got her a vinyl Poe figure and some other random things. I plan to put what I can in the purse. I ordered some of the Nevermore fabric so I am using that.
Here is the pattern I will be using:http://www.etsy.com/listing/60693158/versatile-handbag-pdf-sewing-pattern?
And here is a shot of the pieces I cut for the front and back of the bag. My sister current favorite things are Poe, ravens, and bats so I am trying to focus in on that part of the fabric.
Front, I wanted to get the "Nevermore" on the purse.
And I want to patch this raven on the inside pocket.
I am not sure what maple leaves or spells have to do with Poe. I am admittedly not a huge fan. I have a black cat and that story still makes me mad! LOL!
I plan to cut out the gusset (a black and dark grey bubbly fabric) and put on the interfacing tonight/tomorrow. I will keep you posted!
