I made another bag using the same pattern.









I love both bags.  Now I don't know which one to keep and which one to give away!  Huh

Too Cute!!
Love the fabric, where did you find the butterfly fabric?


I won the butterfly fabric on eBay. It was just one of a 12-fat quarter bundle. I am glad everyone likes my fabric choices - I seriously did not expect them to combine so well!  Cheesy

Oh, this is just lovely! The pattern really is great, and I love the fabrics you used! How did you make that decorative flower thingy??

You can find a tutorial on how to make the flower yoyo here:

The bag pattern is from Sweet Pea Totes.  It can be purchased as an eBook. You can view their site here:  http://sweetpeatotes.blogspot.com/.   I highly recommend it as the instructions and photos are very detailed and clear.

It was the first time I ever spent for a pattern...and all I can say is that it was worth every cent.  I just love how my bag turned out!  Grin

I promised myself I wouldn't waste any fabric.  I used only 3 fat quarters even if I wasn't really meant to.  With a little bit of ingenuity, it can be done. 

Hope you all like it!

can you please tell me the dimensions of the finished bag? I could not get the directions for it after subscribibg to the newsletter. I emailed them and have  not had a reply. I think I can figure this out if I know the  measurements. I think I may unsubscribe, if I don't hear from them tomorrow. I'm discouraged.
Thanks in advance.

My finished bag dimensions are as follows:
Top edge - 11"
Bottom edge - 15"
Height - 8 1/4"
Bottom depth - 2"

The handles started off as 2 1/2 x 20" strips, while the loop was a 3x13" strip. Also, the back panel is just one fabric, unlike the front.

Hope that helps.

By the way, I decided to change the buttons to self-covered ones.  I like the results better. What do you think?

Hello there! I was surfing the net this morning and chanced upon the website preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'www.youcanmakethis.com').  Signing up for their newsletter, I got some freebies, including full instructions on how to make "The Debut" Purse from Kimberbell Kids.  The step-by-step instructions and photos were super clear and what was great about making the bag was that it only required 3 fat quarters!  I managed to finish one, squishing my sewing in between cooking dinner and washing the dishes.
Here's my version......hope you get inspired to make your own!  Cheesy





150  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Soft Sewing Bag TRANSFORMED into a Hand Bag on: March 28, 2008 04:07:08 PM
Hello again! The idea of transforming the sewing bag into something else has been on my mind since I first made one.  So here it is...







I added d-rings and a short strap.  Isn't it cute?  Grin This is for my 10-year old daughter.

In case you haven't seen the original sewing bag post, here's the link.  It includes a tutorial link as well.
