So about a year ago I found this amazing houndstooth fabric at an upholstery store, and I have been saving it since then. I figured maybe I would make a skirt, but decided the fabric would be too heavy for that (although I still might do it!) but I had to use some of it on something! So I made this purse.

It is my first bag, so I didn't put any pockets in it because I figured that would be one too many firsts for a project, but I never use the pockets in my other purses so it works great for me. The heavy upholstery fabric also helped keep it a little more sturdy.

The lining is just a striped cotton.





So yeah, I hope you like it.

Thank you! It wasn't nearly as hard as I anticipated, although I need a lot of practice lining up seams.
