Hi all!
So this is the first bag I have ever made! I was pretty excited but sceptical that it would turn out properly, So i didn't take before pictures.
also I have a horrible camera that hates me so the pics aren't that great.
on with the pics

So what I started with was a skirt that was pretty similar to this one but was a light green with beaded flowers


This is how the bag turned out. Since my camera hates me and its night time the color is a little washed out. It is a lot more green in person

Closer to the actual color

Close up of the detailing

I don't have a picture of the lining but it is the same color as the outside only sans beading since I used the underlining of the skirt

So it isn't perfect but alteast I know what to do and what not to do next time. I figure it will make a good beach bag at least!!

C&C Welcome!!

This certainly doesn't look like a first timer's bag! Good for you for taking a leap and learning stuff along the way. Smiley Awesome job.

It's so satisfying when trying something new turns out the way it was meant to. Super cute recon!

Thanks Everyone. I am super pleased with how it turned out and can't wait to start another bag. I haven't used my sewing machine since moving in March so I am glad that I have something new to peak my intrest lol
