I made this bag for a girl I work with.  She said she wanted something with purple and I was lucky enough to find this fabric in the remnants bin at JoAnn's for $1.60 and I made $25 off the purse. Can't beat that.

Beautiful bag!  Is this by chance an Amy Butler pattern, or just your own made-up style?  It really reminds me of an AB pattern and your bag looks really professional, too.  Nice work!  Smiley

Thanks everyone.  I actually used this pattern: http://kristinlaflamme.com/musings/?p=119  I changed the end product. As you can see the straps on mine don't tie together but are sewn and I didn't use any fringe.  I actually like the style from the blog better but ended up cutting the straps too short to tie them.  Anyhow, that is what I used. it was really easy to follow but the bag turned out a lot smaller than I thought.   I didn't post the link on the first post because I couldn't find it when I was posting this. haha
