So, I saw this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305585.0 and decided I wanted to try this bag. The tutorial (http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html) made it look easy enough. I found an old skirt that I never wore, and probably wouldn't again and some sort of suede-y polyester fabric that my boyfriend's grandma gave me a long time ago and got to work.
Here it is:
and the best picture I could get of the inside:
Here is the skirt I used:
I know it's hard to tell, but the skirt had some decorative seams on it that made it hard to cut out the pieces, but I got it to work somehow.
Also, for the button loop, I used the top trim of the skirt. It had some pretty embroidery on it, but that made it a little bulky.
Next time, I think I am going to make the bag part longer and the straps a little shorter. I love how you can change it up like that.
Well, I'm done talking now. Thanks for looking!
