I made this back in April and have been wanting to share.  I saw another post on craftster about Ric Rac's 1-hour purse (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=234709.0 ) and tried it out--it was great for someone who had never made a purse before.  I highly recommend this pattern--very cute and very easy!

All the fabric is from a pillow sham I got at Goodwill for 50 cents and have been saving for just the right project--I think the wavy pattern looks so good on this! I did modify it slightly and did a flap with a button cause I had the supplies on hand. I also learned that I will probably use some sort of iron-on interfacing or heavier stabilizer (than the flannel I used) next time, as it is a bit floppy after two months of use. Does anyone have a recommendation for use with plain cotton? I have some other fabric I'd like to use but would like it with a bit more body.

Comments welcome, thanks for looking!

My daughter wanted in on all the picture taking so we have one of the purse we sewed together for her--here she is showing the inside. Too cute!

The purse is great but your daughter is spectacular! What a doll! Tell her she looks just like a model. :-) Thanks for sharing.

Super cute.  I have been collecting pillow cases too.  Might have to try this bag.

Very cute!! I love the idea of using pillow cases to make bags! I am new to bag making and think I will start searching the local goodwill for fabrics to use!!  Great job on the bag!

You asked for some tips on interfacing...

My favorite so far is fusible fleece paired with heavyweight fusible interfacing.  There is also something called Pellon Peltex, which is exceptionally stiff and would give the bag a boxy look...more linear, you know what I mean?  I've seen the peltex used as the bag bottom.  It comes in fusible or non fusible.  In my handbags, I use the fusible fleece on the outside pieces and the heavyweight fusible interfacing on the lining pieces.  If you're doing a larger bag, say a diaper bag, I double up the interfacing and fleece...iron on the interfacing first, then the fleece onto the outer pieces of the bag.  Then I use the interfacing alone on the lining.  You can still get these at some Walmarts and Joann, Hobby Lobby...etc...

Hope this helps

lol, i think you guys may have shopped at the same goodwill... or someone may have donated a lot of these pillow shams.
