I was given some random craft materials by a coworker (I'm the go-to gal for that kind of stuff, everyone knows I'll take it!) and since it's happened before, a precedent has been set that I'll craft something small in return (one person got a tote bag, one a quick-knitted scarf, you get the idea.)

This time, she asked for a bag, not for herself, but for her daughter.  My guidelines:  small, and she doesn't like brown.

Not a lot to go on.  So I skimmed the tutorials here for inspiration, and decided it was the perfect opportunity to try something new, and something I'd been meaning to try anyway:  queenofdiy's cosmetic bag tutorial!

To make it sturdier, I backed the outer fabric with thin flannel, and to make it a wristlet, I just made a strap and sandwiched it between the outer layer when I sewed the sides together. 

I don't often work with directional patterns, so I'm quite happy that I remembered to reverse the second piece, and that I managed to get the stripes to line up properly. 

I also love the arrowhead it makes on the sides.  I think I need one of these for myself now....

That does look great with those stripes: a splendid job.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Nice idea and nice work!  These are fun to make and the fabric pattern arranging is so interesting as you figure out what works.  Yes, that triangular end makes it look really good.

Interesting piece!  The triangle shape and arrowheading are cool.  Nice work!

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
