I went to the beach a few days ago and I needed a tote to carry my "neccessities" in. I couldn't find one I liked so I decided why not make one. The brown is an old pillowcase, pink interior fabric is an old shirt, and the dotted stuff is felt. It's closure is a dotted felt tie at the top.

I like the colors you used! Very nice. Once you start making things more and experimenting with new things, making purses and such comes easier to ya. What I started doing with my purses is sewing two separate same sized squares (or whatever the shape of the purse is), then putting the liner inside the outside fabric, and then folding the top in and sew around that. Therefor you don't see the folded fabric. Wow that sounds confusing. ha ha. If you ever want to talk, my sn is in my profile.

Well no, not exactly. . .
when you put the two peices of fabric inside one another, you take the rough top and fold it inwards. and pin it together. Then place your handles in and sew. I'm not very good at explaining things. haha.
