This is a bag I made for my sister's birthday using the tutorials here on Craftster.
I wanted it to be sophisticated on the outside yet fun and cute on the inside.
She loves owls right now so I lined it with cute owl fabric.
Decent pocket space...
It's basically a Jordy bag with some slight modifications.
I gave it straight sides like in this tute...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0
I added the pleat myself. And then put the bag together with the top zipper like in this tute...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=85354.0
The interior zippered pocket was made according to this tute...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.0
Thank you to all those who provide such good tutorials!! I couldn't have made this without you! (OK so maybe I could have it just would have taken me a LOT longer. lol
Oh, BTW she loved the bag. She even texted me the next day to tell me she was already using it.
