i love it too!  my friends always say "i know you made that" but they say it's because it "looks like me".... its so very my taste that theres no way anyone mass-produced it.  which is awesome... like your bag!

I think it does look like you made it, but in a good way. I think it's a fabulous bag.

When I make stuff my friends often say that too lol
But I guess, if you would have wanted it to look store bought, wouldn't you have just went ahead and get one at a store?
It's lovely by the way I think your friend meant it as a compliment !

Took for granted all the little things.
But now it's over,
All I can say is goodbye.

Very pretty bag!  I too like the scallop stitch.  I used it on a dress I made for my daughter just for a decorative touch.  Keep posting all your stuff!!

This bag is super cute!!  Maybe your friend just meant it's your style.  I'm sure she didn't mean it looks like you made it cuz it looks generic cuz it totally does not.

Handmade and vintage goodness!

Gorgeous bag, yay-it*s_tanya! I have a question for you: did you double or triple up the outside fabric? I ask because I've also found some beautiful sheets that I'd like to use to make purses/bags, but I'm always afraid the fabric will be too thin and will rip easily. Although, I guess the inside fabric is the only one that really needs to be thick?

I've only made one purse so far, and it was from scrap fabric which happened to be really thick...

Anyway, amazing job!
Life is full of adventure!

If I told you that, it would definitely be a compliment Smiley I love the combo of fabrics, the cute stitching, and esp. the pointed closure tab. Nice work!

The gal who smiles when things go wrong has just thought of someone to blame it on.

Wow your bag is amazing - I love the fact that it is made from recycling something else into something fabulous.

Could you please telll me did you follow a tute on here?? if so could you please point me in the right direction?


I got the idea from a bag i saw on here a while ago but i can't find the link. I didn't follow a tutorial but if you want me to, I can tell you the measurements of the pattern pieces I made.
