I love that pear fabric.  This bag would be perfect for me.  I don't carry a purse normally, but when I have pants with no pockets I need something small.

I am gonna have to get my crafting center up now that we are settled in!

image 1  - for cut fabric is missing. Can you supply the size of the pieces to be cut?
Many thanks

Ahh, this tutorial is great! Unfortunately since the first image is gone I had to eyeball the sizes for the fabric, but it still came out okay-ish. Our school made us all buy t-shirts with our homecoming dance ticket and mine was WAY too big... so I made it into a bag. It's rather floppy, but seeing as I had never sewn a purse before and hadn't used a sewing machine for about four years, it came out pretty well.

I accidentally sewed the strap *into* the lining the first time, though, and had to cut it out and sew it back in the right way. Oops.

I don't remember the original dimensions, but when I make them I always cut the bag pieces 9" x 11" with 1.5" squares cut out (makes the internal dimensions about 7" x 9") and the straps 4" x 22".  You can modify the dimensions to make it larger or smaller.  Hope that helps!

This is great, but a couple of your images are missing (the first one primarily). It says "on your lining fabric, stitch together 3 sides, but not where the squares are cut out", but I can't see what you mean by the cut-out squares. Thanks for posting this, it looks great and I want to make one!

I corrected them on the original thread. Smiley  It was due to a burp in Craftster photo hosting when we upgraded.  All better!

Thank you! That helps a lot. These bags are so cute!

Also: sweets4ever - your tagline cracks me up, no one should wear those ridiculous plastic shoes in public! Tongue

No problem!

...I know!!  The mods taunt me about them all the time.  I think they're the devil's play things. Cheesy
