I bought some nice khaki fabric, and saw a really pretty purse someone made... somewhere.. I feel terrible that I totally stole his/her idea and can no longer remember where I saw it. But as long as we know that I am guilty of visual theft and don't take credit for the idea...
ANnnnnnyways.

I couldn't possibly love the lining fabric any more than I do.

Although, I almost love the buttons as much as I love the lining. I'm a big fan of the button bin at fabricland. big big fan.

*drools*
But yes, it holds a ton of stuff and is incredibly darling AND hasn't fallen apart, unlike some of my other favourite purses that I've made.

Not falling apart is one of the key qualities I look for in a handmade...anything.

I think its wonderful. I love the pleats and DEFINATELY the lining.

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

Thanks!
Lately I've been forgetting to attach handles before I sew the lining and whatnot together, but this seemed to work out well, so who am I to complain?

Hello! I've come to serenade you. I can't play guitar. I can't play this either, but I thought it would be less obvious. So if you could just kind of stand there and look wistful, and I...

I bought the handles, actually. They were on sale at fabricland. They're really neat cuz they're kinda squishy and not very stiff so they're pretty comfortable to hold on to.
