I guess it's a bucket/oval bottom here go.
Dont know the name of this purse I guess it's bucket that's what I keep seeing but, here go my bucket/oval bottom purse.

In this picture to the right and left same fabrics 2 interfacing 1 blue 1 black fabric. So that makes it 2 black 2 blues.
I measure by eye so mainly you decide your measurements. Mainly a square is how I start off. Top of the purse is more longer then the sides.
Below is 2 black 2 infterfacing 1 cardboard for the bottom of the purse. I shape out my oval as I clip in the pins.
To the far right is 2 blue 2 black fabrics for the straps. 2 rings and 2 smaller fabrics 2 blue 2 black for the ring holder.

Here I cut in half 1 blue and 1 black fabric. This will be sewn together mix match.

Strap: I take 1 blue and 1 black fabric line them up folding in the ends so you wont see the ruff edges and sew together. This also goes for the small strap holder pieces

Left side before right side after

Straps: after sewn 2 small ring holders I put though the 2 rings.

To your left will be the outside or shoot inside it's reversable. I just mix and match the blue/black and sewn them together and iron them open. For all fabrics I iron to the interfacing fabric.

To your left is where I sew up both sides ONLY I double sew it helps to have the purse last longer and also keep it flip inside out without the thread wearing out. To your right I turn out after sewing both sides. This will be the outside of the purse for now.

I then take the bottom fabric after ironing to the interfacing I then pin to the purse and cut around it taking away the fabric I don't need. Then I sew together. For the inside and outside pieces.

This the bottom of the purse. I also cut out the cardboard to size up with the bottom.

Put the cardboard at the bottom of the purse see now it holds up from the cardboard. I put a little hot glue on the card board so it can stick to the bottom of the purse so it wont move while reversing it over and over.

Put the bottom on the inside fabric also. To the left is the inside of the purse to the right is the outside. Wish ever side is never no wrong side.

1 strap will be sewn to 2 rings as seen here in this picture. Fold in the edges and sew to hide the ruff edges.

I then put the inside lining in the outside and fold in the edges making sure none of the edges of the fabric shows and pin it closed.

Here I open up the fabric to pin in my straps between both fabrics.

Here I sew all around the purse closing it.

Side 1 and back of side 1

Side 2 and back of side 2

Thanks for looking:) have any question I will surely answer thanks:)

Thanks so much.  I like the look of this bag, but the reversible part freaks me out.  I know some of my own bags became reversible, but I didn't do it on purpose.lol   I'll give this a try, thanks again.

Thanks for checking out my post. Yeah it can be scary for reversable but,  like you most of my bags turns out reversable anyway. Love that I can change up a purse to, to different ways in just one purses how exciting. This purse is for my moms she wont never flip it to the other side she says, that means I have to take everything out my purse lol. Thanks again for replying. Smiley
