I am new to craftster.  I spotted a purse by sushimifune.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14447.0

I liked the purse so much that I made my own version.  The base is an elongated oval and has a hard base sewn into the lining.


Height: 20cm (8"), width: 33 cm (13"), depth: 8 cm (3")

Comments appreciated




Fully lined.



Thanks

Way cute!  I like the fact that it zippers at the top.  Looks very stable as well!  Good job!  Grin

I love it!  Love the shape, the zipper top, the really nice leopard fabric (is it velveteen?)!  And how did you get the satin lining to conform to the interior of the bag so nicely?  That's my biggest problem (besides all the deep-seated psychological ones, that is).

The leopard print is a faux fur fabric with a very small pile about 6mm  (1/4").

The lining isn't exactly perfectly conforming,  but it does help if you hand sew the lining seam allowance to the outer fabric seam allowance in a few places particularly around the base and near the top.  Its a very fiddly job and you won't be able to do this on all the seams and still turn the purse the right way out.

Unfortunately I don't have a tutorial for this one yet.

I drafted the pattern myself and will have to make some adjustments to the pattern.  Perhaps I'll make another one.  I have started on another different type of purse from another pattern I drafted myself.  I may do a tutorial for this new purse.

It looks really well-made and I like how you put in the zippered top. I like zippers. Smiley

I like zippers too.  I put my purse on the passenger seat when I drive and I hate how your purse falls over and spills the contents when you turn the corner.

I hate that too and it always happens when I change to a non-zipper purse. AGH!  Last time I cleaned my car I found so much stuff out of my purse, I think I could have filled a shoe box!  Now, I'm to the point where I'm sew pockets inside for my cell phone, pens and crap because I keep losing stuff in the purse bottom, too. 

That is such a great purse. What is the detail around the base of the faux fur?  It really adds a lot to the purse. 

If you wanted to post the pattern, most of us could probably guess the how-to part. I like to scan them into the computer anyway because I tend to lose things and it's easy for resize if I need too.  I mark out an inch on the pattern and then scan it.  When I print it again, I just adjust until it comes out as a inch.

Here's a pattern like that that I posted for an eye mask:
