Wow, I really like the bag. How did you get it so firm that is stands alone?

Also I love the pattern, is it yours or did you use a tut?

Thanks, Hasna

The purse fabric is gorgeous!  It looks amazing now... it'll look even more fancy once it's lined!  Great job!

the fabric itself is actually almost like seatbelt material so its pretty sturdy itself but I put in some thin cardboardish material along the sides and bottom.

I used scraps of the material that were rectangles, one really big one for the front, bottom and back all one piece and sewed smaller rectangles to the sides. It really needs a liner...

{hugs} thanks!
