So, it's been a while since I made a bag for myself.  I saw this bag on AE and thought, I like it, but didn't need it to be changing from one type of bag to another (I wouldn't mind trying to make it though.)  And I also like a more boxy or square purse rather than unformed...but you'll see Smiley haha

My sewing machine wasn't being cooperative so I just left it as is for the pictures (inside picture will show what I mean...)  But I have since re-sewn the top Smiley  The flash also made it look lighter, it's darker brown canvas!  Here she be: 

Outside with a lil pocket for my cell phone:


Inside with cute camo fabric (love da hubby - in the army):


If anyone wants, I can make a lil tutorial, since I plan on making another bag like it.  Just let me know!

Also, if anyone knows how to resize these so I can make the pictures a bit smaller, please let me know! haha

your bag looks great! About the pictures- i use photobucket to upload my pics. they have a photo editor there that will let you resize them easily. I tried to import them through craftster and it wasn't working. But when I went over to photobucket it went much easier and faster.

Sorry it took a couple days to reply!  I'll be doing another one of these tomorrow (with some cute green interior fabric...I need to grab more of the material for the handles!)  But I'll take pictures and all for a tute Smiley
