I loved reading the Nancy Drew mysteries when I was growing. I just recently re-watched the recent movie with Emma Roberts. I didn't notice the bag the first time around (they only show a quick shot at the beginning of the movie). I couldn't find much about it online, so I paused the movie and took pictures with my camera. This is what I came up with. It was a lot of work and hard to figure out. I wish I could get a pattern, because I would do more if I could get the secret behind how to make it much easier. To make the bag stiff I used a double sided stiff fusible interfacing (that I got from my FAB swap partner, thanks eaon2002). The lining is a yellow "plaid" that I also got from her. The outside is denim that I bought years ago at Walmart for $1 a yard. I bought the whole bolt - 20yds.
Front of the bag. Was too plain so I added fabric covered buttons and ribbon.
Side showing more buttons hiding the magnetic snaps.
Top of large "pocket"
Inside right showing some of the pockets - for drink mixes, business cards, note cards, tape measure,and tissue cozy.
Inside left showing pockets for cellphone, lotion, pens and pencils (they were supposed to be on the other side but I forgot about the flap and the pens are too high). I have an elastic for my hand sanitzer but it made the purse a little warped. It's not the regular ones everyone has, it's round.
Added outside pocket for my glasses.
Here is a picture of the inside of the bag from the movie.
