This was my first time making this bag (its a pattern) and I am so in love with it.

The pattern is for a quilted bag, which I just cant bring myself to do.  Makes me think of "grandma's purse".... shudder.

So omitting the quilting, this is what I came up with.  It was a christmas present for the greatest pool hall waitress, well aside from me (I denounced that title a while back)
She likes yellow.  I like polkadots.  This is what I came up with.  It was a difficult task, because I am not a fan of yellow at all.  I think this was the first time that I have bought anything yellow that wasnt on the clearance table. 

I dont know if you can see it, but I did a satin stitching where the two fabrics meet up.  It was that fancy varegated orange to yellow thread.  I lurve it! 



A picture of the inside.  I  was looking all over for that tute on how to do that fancy (easy) zipper-in-the-bag, but I couldnt find it... I winged it, and I think it turned out pretty nice.

I am def going to wing the pattern a bit again and make one to my liking, In pink of course.... my favorite color.

LURVE IT TOO!  Cute fabric and I like the idea of satin stitching the fabrics together at first glance I thought it was piping between the fabrics.
Great job, can't wait to see the pink one

Not fond of yellow either, but this is a gorgeous bag!

I like the "quilty" look without the quilting!  Good call!

Your friend is lucky--can't wait to see yours in PINK!!!

Thanks for the compliments ladies!  I have been in a little bit of a funk lately... I am working on a nursery for a friend who is due at the end of Jan. (think crunch time for me)  I have everything but the quilt done, and ive been stagnate on ideas.  (if you wanna see what ive done its in the occasions and baby area of craftster)
I made all my christmas presents early, so ive been stuck with this project for a while.  It was nice to make a bag.... I guess you could call them my passion.
I really want to dig into my stash right now and work on the pink version, but I cant... Me is so very sad. 
Time to get working on this dang quilt!!!

Very cool! Before I read that it was satin stitch, I thought that you had put piping between the sections.

I don't carry purses. But this one? I'd carry it. Yellow is my favorite color, and polka dots are just way fun. Great job. Smiley

It's funny you would call this Hippie Chic-
the flower print is the very same print one of my friends used for a Halloween couple costume for my son and her daughter.  They went as hippies and were the hit of the party.  I'll have to see if I can dig up a pic and post it sometime. 
I like how you've used the "hippie" print with the polka dots- I'm a sucker for dots, esp black and white Wink  Great job!!
