Going to Ikea is always a bad idea for my wallet. I ended up at the fabric section, naturally, and found really awesome fabric that I knew I had to make a purse out of. In a manic fit 2 nights ago, I cut out, sewed, and finished the whole thing.

So here it is...

Same here, but I'm not sure mine has a fabric section.  I'll have to look more closely next time! Grin

I love that print! And it looks very well made!

Great job for a "manic fit."  Wink

I have exactly that fabric in my stash from my local Ikea that was bought specifically to make a bag just like that.

I'm gonna have to get my sewing machine out aren't I?

You've done a great job by the way.

I have about a yard of that same print...and it has been screaming at me since it arrived that it MUST be made into a purse of some type as well LOL!  I have SO much yardage, and SO many ideas...I will get to it soon enough, possibly will end up a bag to someone for Xmas Smiley  Love the cute pockets on the inside of yours, I have to try something like that out for myself....putting pockets on the inside of a bag has proven to be more daunting for me than zippers!
