Hey guys! I've just finished a new bag for my friend and i'm very proud. It was my first time lining a bag, and first time doing a pocket of anysort, so its a big accomplishment for me
It's pink, its gingham, and more importantly it has RUFFLES!!
I followed a mish mash of things, I used a McCalls bag pattern for the main part, and extending it to make a tote bag.
I then followed Jordy's square bottomed bag tutorial to do the lining, which can be found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0
and stuck in a slit pocket which I used the zippered pocket in lining tut, just replacing the lining with a strip of fabric.
Here is the link for that tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.0
here are some up close shots
Ruffle detail. It has tulle underneath the pink satin stuff to make it poof out more.

and there we go! Comments appreciated!
