This is BY FAR the most wonderful, most professional, most gorgeous thing I have ever made. It took a little over five hours (minus cutting the fabric) and I am so excited to show it off. I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks.

Inside the bag:
Full (it holds a lot of stuff):

And the ACTION SHOT!!
I absolutely LOVE this bag and I hope you all do too. Thanks so much for looking.
My cousin asked me a LONG time ago to make her a bag, but I haven't gotten around to getting the colors she wanted. So I figured, I'll make her something really cute then when I get her fabrics, I'll make her exactly what she wants.
So here is the cutest thing I think I've ever made.
Her name is Bethany, so a B!
And I realize that the pocket is super messy. I meant it that way.
I had today off from work and I am a little stressed about a few things, and there is nothing more therapeutic than sewing on a whim. Now I just have to figure out who to give these to, I am running out of places to put all these bags!
My little El Burro handbag:
Pockets *I got the idea for these pockets because when I make myself a little bag, my pockets are never tall enough, so I figured, why not make them the same height as the bag?*:
I have been so busy with work and getting ready to go back to school, I just haven't had time to make hardly anything! I made this last week but am just now getting around to posting it.
A lady I work with gave me this fabric. She found it in her house when she moved in and asked if I wanted it because it was ugly and she wouldn't use it.
When she brought it to me, I thought she was bonkers. Its so cute!
Here you are:
The outside. I didn't take a picture of the back, but it has an image of a Mexican guitar.

Inside the main pocket. *A little secret, that datebook is hiding my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pez dispenser*
Inside the zipper pocket. I was so excited how the pocket turned out. I have never been able to make a bag with more than one compartment other than little pockets before. Its so neat and I am really proud.
I'd love to hear what you think about it!
Oh and one last little bit. I did no measuring whatsoever. I went by the length of the zipper! Haha.
