Hi!

I love making these! They are pretty easy, they just take quite a bit of time, but they turn out awesome! I love the shape and how you can tweak with the dimensions to make a huge one or even an itty bitty one Smiley

Here is a tutorial to make one... I figured it all out then found this tute. Roll Eyes Anyway, its really informative and has lots of pics!

Hope you like it.... Comments or criticism?

What a beautiful bag.  Thanks for the tutorial too.  I like the materials you used and I really like that boxy look.   

I looked over at your blog while I was over there at the tutorial.  You sound like a cool mom and friend!  I'm a crocheter and beginning knitter  but I sure agree with you about the yarn being too expensive to work with it while in the line at DMV.  But I think fabric is pretty expensive too (at least the ones I like!).  Well, maybe you could learn to crochet little things (using thread) to applique onto your beautiful sewing projects.  You've got kids, so they open up alot of possibilities in crocheted things, and really it is fun to be able to have something to do while at the doctors office, waiting for kids to get out of school....or yes the DMV!  And a crochet hook and ball of thread is a lot more portable than a sewing machine!

I love the Japanese craft books.  I got an amigurumi one (crocheted little animals) and it was a little difficult to figure out in places.  How about the purse and sewing craft books, are they easy to figure out?  I saw how you said this was your interpretation of the book's pattern.  That's what I had to do with the Japanese pattern book for amigurumi too...interpret in my own way and use their pictures for inspiration because the patterns were very difficult to figure out. 

I have  often said that if someone who knew both Japanese and English would work out some sort of copyright deal with the original publishers and then write a translation of those books, they could make a great living...I wish it could be me but I just don't have time to learn Japanese right now!

Well thanks for posting your purse.  I love it (and all your sewing projects on your blog as well).

Ooops!  I just realized that the tutorial you linked to was not from you but from someone else!  Well, I still like your purse and thanks for the tutorial even if it is from someone else.
