I love the pleated purses and i found fabric that I loved, so I got down to it.
There was no pattern, just the pictures of others' purses.
Here's the finished purse


Here's a close up of the pretty ladies


And it's reversable


And the close up of the other two fabrics.


Thanks for looking.

Gorgeous fabric! The bamboo handles look great with it.  I love that it is reversible too!

I agree, the handles really compliment the fabric. Your bag is great!  Smiley

The purse is so nice! The fabric is beautiful! Where in the world do you sewers find such wonderful fabric? I'm looking for some Japanese fabric for my kitchen. Any suggestions on where to look?

I actually just saw this fabric at Wal-Mart the other day and had to convince myself not to buy it. Awesome bag though!
