okay first of all I apologise for the crappy picture I am going to show you guys but I don't have a digital camera or a picture that would show what I'm thinking of making but anyway the community here seems like the best place to get the help I'm after so yeh

this is the type of bag I'm looking to make, once again sorry for the image but if anyone has any tutorials, tips or even better pictures/suggestions then fire away



okay the image is tiny and sucks but if you copy and paste the link you might get a feel as to what i'm after but basically its a slouchy type bag to wear on my shoulder and where the closure is along that edge to be sort of ruched?

so yeh any help will be much obliged
edit - modified to fix img link (melidomi)

and apologises if the image doesnt work

Ok, the pics suck and maybe this is not exactly what you wanted, but if you like it I can give you some tips.
Anyway, i was planning to do something more similar to the one you requested, so when I decide to make it I will take pictures!
Ciao!

it seems simple as any other purse, just pleat or gather the top edges before you sew the lining and outer together.
