Hi everybody,

I made this bag inspired by a tutorial I think I saw on this board. I did not actually use the tutorial, read it once or twice, and then drew up my own pattern, and added a flap.

I do want to give credit though, of course, to the maker of the tutorial! Who is it?

The bag is made of two new, cheap pillowcases. Inside fabric as the outside flap.

(other comments welcome too, of course).

Do you need a cute purse to go with that outfit?

That is a cute purse!  I think that looks like a combination of a couple of tutorials and then you made it your own with the flap.  I love those pillowcases/fabric.  Was it hard to do the snap on the flap?  I've been wanting to do a flap like that but can't figure out a closure for it.  The snap is perfect.

Thanks Runnermom!

To answer the questions: I put the snap throught both sides of the fabric at the flap part, but only on the outside fabric on the bag part. At the time I was doing it I thought that was the best way, since you won't see the snap on the inside, but now I realize that the backdrop is that it's less stable. So another time I would put it through both fabrics. And it's easy to do, you just follow the directions on the package.

The straps are sewn (by hand) on the top. I guess a knot would annoy me. Also I made them really long, so the bag is on my hip when I have the straps on the opposite shoulder.

Thanks for your comments.
