First new post under my new user name! Yay!

I'm heading off to Fanime this year, and usually when I need a weekend bag I raid my mom's closet...but the only thing I could find was this old (knockoff?) Fendi bag she got as a wedding gift oh-so long ago. Well...as I was taking it out of the closet she gave me this looks like she was going to cut off my hand if I didn't put it back! Hahaha So I sat down and a couple hours later I had drafted my own pattern and voila! I made a TOTALLY cute weekend bag!!!! Tell me what you think! I learned a LOT of lessons while making this bag (like sewing through 4+ layers of Peltex 71 is a PAIN) and I will for SURE be making another one! I already have the fabric picked out =D
