A while ago i bought a cute but huge babydoll style tank top from the charity shop around the corner with the intent to refashion it to fit me. After leaving it hanging on my craft room door for about a month I decided this afternoon that perhaps it was destined to be a bag instead. I started cutting and sewing without really planning anything specific and came up with this. It took me a couple of hours but would have been much quicker/easier if i hadn't insisted on lining it and adding a top panel. I'm pretty pleased with the result Cheesy

and this one shows the size a little better - it fits magazines woot!

Thanks guys Smiley The cute print was the reason I bought the top but also the reason i felt that i would never actually wear it as a top lol.
