Both ladybug and bunny fabrics are just remnants I found in a local store (Big W) here in Melbourne.

that fabric is absolutely adorable!! I love the whole thing, but the ladybugs are really a wonderful addition to the bag.

I have a quick question... is the zipper used for the top like a zipper you would use for a jacket?  then when it is all sewn would you just zip it up like a jacket, you know like putting the one end into the other then zip?  i guess i have never used one like that for a purse... so technically you could zip it all the way open if you wanted? 

Please let me know... I'm confused and would like to make a bag like this... someday when i get a chance...  Huh

THANKS YOU!!!!  Grin

Yes, it is an open-end zipper that opens up all the way.  I personally think this particular feature of the bag is what makes it different from the rest.   Grin  Have fun sewing!

YEAH I'm so excited!!!!  I JUST finished this bag!  I am going to vegas the first week of November, so of course i needed a 'Vegas Purse' so i found some awesome fabric from an etsy seller, and used HeartofMary's wonderful tute, and this is how it came out!!!!  There were a few points where i was like 'is this going to work' but it all worked out in the end. 

Here is the outside hanging on my door...




Here is under the flap with the front two pockets and the zipper, which was sooo easy! 



And the inside, there is a zipper pocket on the back side by my top finger, but you cant really see it



And a bonus picture of my kitty helping me Smiley



Like i said i am way excited about this, i know ill take it everywhere with me and it is the right size to take on the plane, and from casino to casino for sure!

Thank you HeartofMary! YOU TOTALLY ROCK, and thank you for the help!!!!!!

very cool!  I think I might try to make one of these.  I have been looking to make a bag to carry all of the stuff I use to write lesson plans.
