I made this to go with an outfit I'm wearing to a wedding in October.
It didn't really come out as professional-looking as I wanted, as it was really hard!  I gave up on an inside pocket with zip I was going to do, and the handle is a little bit off-centre, but I don't care any more because it's FINISHED!  It was also really cheap to make as all the fabric was on special.

Now I can go back to sewing pajama pants, skirts, and t-shirt reconstructions Wink

aww, don't be so hard on yourself!
I think if you did a little top stitching along the opening and pressed it real smooth, it would look perfect.

you can sew pajama pants?! screw purses, i want to make pants! I can make purses just fine... but I attempted some pj pants from a simplicity pattern and got totally lost.

The purse looks fine, though... The beauty of the fabric and design takes away from any flaws you say are there. Just dont tell anyone- its SUPPOSED to be that way, right? Wink

I imagine the satin was somewhat hard to sew- that probably didnt help

I really, really like it! Can you post a pattern? I love the little bow. It looks like something you'd buy in a store. Smiley

Yeah, the satin was really hard!  I did use iron-on interfacing with it though, which helped.  Although not much, since you're always sewing right sides together...

I was originally going to topstitch around the opening, but decided not to.  I might still do that.  I've pressed it at various stages in its construction, but now that it's all together it's really hard, as the bag is quite small.  It's only about 20cm across at the top.

I won't post a pattern as that part's not all that difficult.  Just draw a trapeze shape on a piece of paper, and round the bottom corners.  Then measure how long the sides are and that's how long the gusset will need to be.

As for pajama pants, I'll share a little secret... http://www.mediatinker.com/blog/archives/008262.html
Those instructions are great.  I make them a little wider at the bottom though as I like a bit more room.  There's loads of room for error so you can't really go wrong.  I'm about to make some more (out of more satin, argh!) so I'll be sure to post the finished result up here.

cute, satin is a pain, but using a glue stick in the seam allowance helps with the shifting arounf that it likes to do.
