Hey Craftsterettes/Crasftster-dudes!

I've fallen in love with a DKNY purse Zooey Deschanel sported in a movie (I believe it was 'The Happening'...anyway), which is now many seasons old and was always out of my price range.

This is a link to a thread with pictures - The Zooey pic is back a page - the link to the page I've posted shows someone's own pics of the bag at different angles:


If anyone can offer any advice on structure/a similar pattern/whatever, I'd be so grateful!

The actual pic is here http://www.polyvore.com/zooey_deschanel_happening_yellow_bag/thing?id=20992186# It's hard to see, but looks like a bucket shaped (top wider than bottom) bag with rounded corners and maybe a gusset to hold it together. It's not hard, all you have to do is make the top a lot wider than the bottom, then attach the handles about 6 inches from the edge of the bag so when you carry it on your shoulder, the sides come together and form "pleats". Or, if you like the look of pleats, just pleat it yourself so it can look that way all the time.
