This bag!

I originally made this for a Red Cross Benefit Auction that never got off the ground.  Sad







Let's see...

The exterior is home decor. fabric, most likely from Joann's or the like.

The interior is a thrifted sheet.

The interior pocket is trimmed with silver sequin trim, it looks like a zipper, but it's not.

I interfaced the whole she-bang with pellon craft interfacing.

The handles are removable (Though I'm not sure why you'd ever remove them) plastic beads on silver hardware.

And the pink eyelet trim only goes across the top front of the bag, because that's all I had left.

Thanks for checking it out.  Smiley

 ???Bleh.  I'm not sure how I didn't realize these photos were so blurry.  I guess I didn't have my glasses on when I uploaded them.  Woops!  Back to the backyard for me...

Great bag! It's super-cute and very useful size, too! I love bags with wide, flat bases, it is sooo much easier to find things!  Great job picking the complimentary fabric for the interior, they look fantastic together.

Thanks, loremipsum.

I'm a big believer in pattern on pattern design.

I spent my early twenties in a very monochromatic, minimalist sort of way.

I'm glad to say those days are over, the busier the better!  Smiley

I usually dont like "girly" purses, however that one I would be proud to own. It is absolutely beautiful. Great job picking out fabs.
