I think that my favorite new thing to do with purses is to pleat them.  I think that i like the shape it gives the purses- that gradually curving up look.  I got my idea for this purse on plainmabel.com, but mine turned out different that theirs.  It took a lot of measuring and testing to try to get it to look how I wanted it to, and I think it turned out pretty good.  If you want the pattern i can give you the dimensions of the pattern i made up.

That is really cool.  It looks very time consuming, but it probably does give the purse more body.  Great job. 


it's all jewelry all the time!

I love the pleats. It looks like different fabric panels. I'd never have known it was pleated, other than you saying so. This purse is truly professional looking. I love the fabric and the yoke at the top. I love the handles and rings. You did a super job on this purse. WOW!

Thanx Smiley, and yeah, this purse did take a long time to make, but the main time consuming part was finding the dimensions and seeing how much i needed to pleat to give it that look.  I think i'm totally obsessed with pleating now because i just made a pleated clutch.
