 This is the purse that I made for bunny1kenobi for the IYP Swap. We both had this fabric pinned on our Pinterest boards and I was dying to buy it for something. I had to scale the pattern up to fit the entire scene on the fabric. I have never scaled a pattern before so I sort of psyched myself out when I did it. Ended up not being that big of a deal.  Tongue
 I love this pattern because it's easy, it turns out nice, and it showcases focus fabric so well!
 It has a black and gray speckled fabric and the interior is a white on white ivy fabric.

Yeah, it looks like you had nothing to worry about when you altered the pattern to make it bigger.  It turned out fantastic!  That fabric really is cool!!
