Hey, everyone!  I'm not too happy about this one...  What do you all think?  If anyone could give me ideas about what I could do to fix it, I would appreciate it!  It's for my MIL's birthday. 


The sides snap together to make kind of a gusset or something, that's what the snaps are for.


Comments welcome!

i just bought some snaps from the thrift store
i would've never thought of doing that!

i think the bag is perfect as is, but maybe you could make a matching wallet or something?
i made my mom a purse out of this fabric, and she loved it.
i'm making a matching clutch for her birthday.

I think it's awesome.  The snaps are a bit different if that's the part you don't like could you maybe add a strap with a buckle to each side to get the gusset effect.  Just an idea.

What are you not happy with?  I think it's really cute!  No need to fix anything that I can see!

How about a snap flap over the top (2 or 3 inches wide maybe) in the mum fabric?  Your MIL will love this bag, whether you make any changes or not!  (Aren't you married to MY son?)  Cheesy
