First I would like to thank APPLESAREGREEN for your lovely tutorial!!! It was a very easy tutorial to follow,  wish the zipper instructions would have been a little more clearer but it was still a great tut. It was my first zipper, way easier than I expected to install. When I came to the last step (tucking/sewing the ends of the zipper) I had trouble sewing it on my machine so I ended up hand sewing the curves. It did take longer than I expected to complete Roll Eyes, but next time will be alot easier. I did make a few changes/add ons......added inside pockets, made the straps longer, and used ultra firm stabilzer so it has more of a boxy shape. This was a birthday gift for DD's Nanny. She turned 18 this Saturday. She mentioned to me 2 weeks ago how much she loves zebra print so I felt it was my duty to make a zebra purse. She loved it! My mom wants one now Grin. Hope you like it!


Don't you just love my wonky hand sewed curves  Wink

Figured you might want to see the inside.....2 big pockets and 1 pen pocket

I really like the combination of the mad fabric with the straightforward look of the bag.

That is just fantastic!  I really need to make a big horking weekender bag - this makes me want to raid the fabric closet - but alas.  Yardwork today..

Your bag came out amazing!

Thanks so much for the encouragement! I guess I'm the only one that notices all the boo boos, the wonky sides really bothered me Roll Eyes. But no one else seemed to notice so I guess its ok. Meagan loved it so thats all that matters.

Craftdeb --I have been drooling over the AB's weekend bag pattern but I honestly don't think I have the skills for it yet. This is only my 2nd purse. I have never done piping before. I am hoping to try my hand at a AB Sanibel knock off for myself, but I have to wait till my skull fabric comes in...tick toc tick toc.

Cookiecutter -- here's the tut link http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0. The tutorial is still up the pictures are gone, on page 10 at the bottom of the tutorial they have a link to a PDF (with pics) that someone was so nice to share....here it is:
here's the link for the lost pictures
The file is called receita-pleatness bag.doc
Thanks so much ronise for saving this!

Just a word of advice, unless you have a lot of time to spare, I would break this project down into sections (Day 1--make your pattern, Day 2--cut out pieces Day 3--work on pleats....I think you get the idea). I tried to finish it all in one weekend and it was just too much for me (on top of chasing my 16 mo old around). Next time I am breaking into pieces. Just my 2 cents Grin.
