This bag from "tiny happy" http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.htmlhas been posted several times on Craftster, so I decided to give it a try, too.  I've been on a spree buying vintage pillowcases at thrift stores and love the way these two look as a purse.  It's my first time sewing a bag with a lining, it's not as hard as I thought.  Smiley

Thanks to http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305916.0 for bringing this pattern to my attention.  I'll be making more!
