first of all, i hate this pattern. i have trouble with it everytime i make it, but the result is usually okay. in this case its all wonky...but its skulls..so i love it!

close up on chair


full purse shot(please excuse the ever-so-tasteless baby bottle and lighter shot--the baby nor the lighter are mine, lol)


the boring, pockeless inside


its okay as is, but i feel like it needs something....i still havent sticthed the turning hole in the lining yet, so i may add some embroidery or something--oh yeah and a pocket! why would a purse pattern NOT come with pockets?..maybe a flower pin or something would spruce it up......the plain black is well..plain...what do you guys think?

Personally, I don't think you can't a bag that's not great!  Plus, that is just the greatest fabric and makes everything is touches look great too!


Oh yeah - and hopefully the lighter and the baby bottle didn't belong to the SAME person.  Sorry - had to inject my opinion.   Sad

Very cute bag!  If you want to add something, could you add a skull button to it and an elastic thing over the top to hook onto the button?  I hope that makes sense.  I can see what I'm talking about but can't type it out well.

But I like the purse alot like it is.  I like how it is solid at the top and print at the bottom.  And I love that fabric too.  I've been carrying a purse made out of that same fabric for about 2 months now.

It doesn't look wonky to me!  I love it!  And anything with skulls on it is just an A++ automatically. Cheesy
