I saw this fabric and fell in love with it...I thought the print may be to big for a purse/bag but gave it a try anyway...... this is the first bag of this style that I have made.... I dont really do the pattern thing so its all kinda trial and error...

anyway... here it is



and the inside..... cell phone pocket....pen pockets... and a key hook



I added elastic to the sides for the gathered look....and a magnetic clasp... with covered buttons

 

and then I made a few little bags to match



thanks for looking....and letting me know what you think

Is there such a thing as too much fabric or ribbon

I love it.  The gathering on the sides and the scoop in the center are really eye-catching~so is the fabric.  Great job on all!

Wow! That is a fabulous style! I like larger prints for bags myself. I think your bag looks great.

No pattern? That's awesome! I am not usually a pink person but I would absolutely carry this bag!
