So I got a new purse pattern from JennaLou06 on Etsy this week.  I have used her patterns before and they are super easy and cute.  I also had a mere 1/2 yard of this awesome Alexander Henry "Koto" fabric that I knew would be perfect.  But the patter called for 3/4 of a yard.  Well, after some creative pattern placement, I managed to pull a 3/4 yard pattern out of 1/2 yard of fabric!  The lining is just a plain gray fabric..nothing special.  And it does have a zippered pocket on the inside.  So, on to the pic!


C/C always welcome & thanks for looking!!!!

It's a cute bag and I just LOVE the fabric! Too bad they don't sell Alexander Henry's fabrics anywhere near me. Sad

I second this request for the link - I haven't searched for it or anything, but it's really cute, and I'd love to have access to the pattern in case I get a good opportunity to make it!

Thanks so much for the comments!  Here is a link to jennalou's etsy shop:
http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=30116&ga_search_query=jennalou06&ga_search_type=seller_usernames
The bag I used is "Mabel".  It is a PDF pattern.  I got mine the same day I ordered.  It was an easy pattern and fun to make.  I have also made the "Girls Best Friend" wallet and the "Pocket Pal".  They are also great patterns. 

And I dont have anyplace locally that sells AH fabric either  Sad. I have to do all of my "good" fabric shopping when I visit my mom in Dallas!
