For my first version of this one, I don't think it turned out too bad.  The material is a shiny type of something and the print was already on there, it's not beaded.  Oh, and the teddy bear was just a prop.  LOL  I even put a zippered pocket inside, first time I've put in a zipper in too many years.  The tutes on this site really helped me  Only thing is the lining turned out a little funky when I finished up so I may do it a little differently next time.  The size was a little small for my taste too, I need to work on that.  Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Nice job.  I know what you mean about the sizing though.. If the body of the bag is the right size then the straps are too small, or vice versa.  Keep at it, and you'll figure out what works.  I've pawned off my not-well-proportioned bags to my 6 year old, and he doesn't care!

That's a good idea...my mom used to give her old purses to my brother to use to play mailman with.  Cheesy
