Ooh, I love the 'bottom' of the purse.  I have a green brocade that I've been wanting to do something with...now I have an idea!  Grin  Great job and I can't wait to see the tut!

I love the whole purse, but I must admit I'm intrigued by the bottom and how you did it.  I've been meaning to buy some chinese ebroidered silk, and now I'll have to in anticipation of your tutorial!

Great job!

Thanks for all the comments everyone.  Cheesy

I am so loving this bag that I made another one.  This is a Christmas present for my eight year old niece.  She looooves pink, so she will just adore this.  The fabric is a dyed quilting fabric with gold lightning print.



Can't wait to start the next one.  But I promise I will finish the tutorial first.   *goes back to working on tutorial*

LOL! I agree, this is the next Jordy!

I tried making one this afternoon...I kinda used the Jordy pattern and just made diagonal lines at the sides...hard to describe, but I'm waiting for the tutorial! LOL!

I'm saving my nice fabrics for this bag!!!  Grin Grin Grin

Thank you very much for the topnotch tutorial.  You are a very fine seamstress!    When I carve out some time, I definitely want to try this.  Do you have a pattern for the sides of the bag?  Or could you tell us the dimensions?  (Did I just miss them?)  Also, what is "mat board"?  Is it the cardboard used for framing pictures?

 I need this girly bag!

Thanks for the compliment Sewer Rat.  I have been sewing for a long, long time.  It just takes practice to get good at something. 

Here is the link for the side pattern.  You will need to enlarge it until the measurements in the centre are spot on.

Yep.  Mat board is used by framers.  I got a heap of offcuts for $2 from a framer.

I would love to see other people's interpretation of my A- line pattern.  *Must go start on another a- line purse*
