Hi everyone.  This is my first time posting, though I've been a fan of the site for a long time.  I just started sewing last November (5 months ago), but I've gone nuts since that first day.  Here's a bag I just made for my big sister's upcoming birthday.  I posted a complete tutorial with tons of photos at my blog, http://milkandcartoons.blogspot.com/2009/03/big-sister-bag-tutorial.html, if anyone's interested in copying my design.


The purse has two interior pockets and a magnetic closure at the top, along with wooden beaded handles, pleats, and a fun shape!  I can't wait to give this to her on Sunday!

Cute design.  I like how well the handle goes with the fabric.

thanks!  I had a great time making this, and I surprised myself by really enjoying the tutorial as well... I think I'll do more of those, too.
