I guess that's what you'd call this purse. I totally fell in love with this fabric. I bought it at a garage sale a few months ago, and when I got it home and took a closer look, I realized that it was really a set of curtains. Even cooler! Anyway, the pattern of this pures is something that I came up with myself, and its super simple. It has a zippered pocket on the inside and a vinyl handle. Well, its vinyl on one side and fabric on the other. Drum roll, please...

The bag itself:

Thanks for looking!

Oh, I love it!  The fabric is fantastically vintage-looking...makes it that much better!!  And the shape is great, too.  I think it's gorgeous and my 9 yo daughter thinks so, too!!

BTW: I love your tags...did you make them yourself?

What a fun, simple, summer bag! I love the fabric. I have a lot of vintage-y stuff in my stash, but I can't bring myself to use it until I KNOW what I am going to do with it. I like the lining too. Nice color combo Smiley

Thanks so much for the nice comments, guys!

runnermom - I didn't make my labels. I ordered them from one crafty chick on etsy!
