This is the 2nd bag I've made using old retro curtain fabric.  I wish I came across more fabric like this in my thrift store/garage sale shopping!  This particular fabric is so unique that I could hardly wait to make something out of it.  It's a heavyweight fabric.  When I got the bag together, (a basic box shaped style) I noticed a stain in the fabric.  I had washed it beforehand, but it wasn't super noticeable until I sewed it all together! Argh!  Anyhow, I cut out the small stain  where the bag makes a U-shape and was hoping it wouldn't screw it up.  It worked out well though and I made a flap closure.  Whatcha' think and thanks for looking!

Very nice! I like the U shape, it gives the bag more character.  Smiley

I really like that purse a lot, you have inspired me to try different shapes while making purses.

I really love making things out of old curtains or found army shirts. The fabric is so strong and thick. Excellent work. The stitching around the top looks really clean too.

Very cute purse!  Bet those were some ugly curtains!  Much better fabric as a purse IMO!
