I stayed up all night making a purse, and it's the nicest one I've ever done! The others have pretty much just been totes. Of course this is basically just a differently-shaped tote, but shush, it looks way cooler than a tote.

I've been sitting on this fabric, which I got at a charity sale, for like two years now. I love it. A lot. I still have yards of it left, too!





These pockets are WAY too shallow. I'm gonna need to put on fasteners somehow, otherwise nothing will even stay in them, it all just falls out. Ah well, learn through doing and all that.

Yes, I can see that a fastener would help with the pockets; a snap or some sticky-tape velcro (no sewing required) would be simple.

I love the design-did you design it yourself, or did you use a pattern?  The fabric is also lovely.

Great job with the bag!

I love your bag!  I have several pieces of vintage floral that I want to use, but could not find the right shape...thanks for the tips on making the pockets bigger, etc.  It is very lovely!

I made it myself, altering a tote pattern I'd seen before.
