So my friend redid her house recently and when she did she gave me all of her old curtains, one of the sets was a canvasey fabric, I wanted to make it a bag but couldn't decide what type until the other day when I was looking through a magazine.  I saw a bag that I liked the look of except for the fact that it was far too small(I'm like Marry Poppins with my purse), and I'm having a zipper shortage since I haven't been able to get to the thrift store I buy them at($0.25, way better than Wal-Mart), so I took the flower idea and kind of tweeked it to be more me and this is what I got:


And a close up of a flower:


I like my bags to hang low heres kind of an idea of were it hangs:

I think this is really cute! And it seems like a good school bag too.

Are the flowers embroidered?  This could be a neat bag to use as "autograph" bag - have friends sign it with sharpie.

Thanks all!  The flowers are embroydered(the first time I've done it on a sewing machine instead of by hand).  I just got back from visiting family and friends up north and my best bud has requested that I make her one too because she loved mine so much.

Yeah, I thought it looked like a good school bag too.

It's really great. I've got to work on my embroidering.
