I made this bag out of some of the fabric my very nice grandmother gave me. The best part is that it converts into either a handbag or cross body bag. The best, best part is that this flower doesn't attract bugs Wink

handbag:

cross body:

Here's the genius behind it:

The bag takes a LOT of material. I cut 40 petals and 40 leaves total and that doesn't include the actual bag and straps.

The center is one piece of fabric. The weave look is achieved through canadian smocking:

The bag was supposed to have a zipper AND a purse snap but that was redundant so I only used a snap:

Overall, I feel accomplished. I used a tute from this site:http://www.savvyseams.com/bags/flower.php

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

I went to the site and made sure to save the tute -- looks like it won't be around forever.

I was thinking in addition to the purse, this pattern could be used to make some really beautiful throw pillows or chair cushions.
