I'd been using my last purse way beyond the point of acceptance. It was falling apart and ready to let one of the straps go. I saw a certain style of purse popping up every once and a while that I thought looked neat with a main pocket and 2 big side pockets. After scouring 'purse' in image searches, I found one to go by.

Then I sketched the pattern. (My bf said the drawing looked like a cat in a helmet, so I drew a face on it. Pay it no mind).

Made the actual pattern (out of wrapping paper)..

Then started putting everything together.

And finally, the final product!

I'm super pleased with how this came out! I'd love to hear some feedback on it. Thanks for looking!

Hey cool, that's the same style of purse I'm using now. It's so roomy isn't it? I like the fabric you used a lot, actually. What is it? I also really love what you did with the straps. That's a cool design that I may pinch for a future project. All in all, I think you did a fabulous job.

Nice bag. I like how it seems you can take it with you everywhere, yet it is simple and elegant.

I like the fabric you used a lot.  And I do think it looks better than the version you used as an idea-base.

That's awesome!  So cool when you can make your own version of something you like!

This is great!  Love the cat-in-a-helmet shape, too! Wink  Seriously - it's awesome!
