Jelly - The bag measures about 12"x14".... a little bigger than standard 8 1/2X11 paper.

This is a wonderful tutorial. With an added pocket (with a zipper!--quite exciting for a newbie), I just finished a purse based on your instructions. Granted that this is my first purse and my very limited previous sewing experience, I'm very pleased with it. I'll try to post a picture soon once I find my camera cord.  Grin Wink Roll Eyes

I loved the OP's bags so much I had to make my own. First sewing project ever! Thanks for the great tutorial!


The interior is the peachy fabric of the top cuff. Now it needs to hurry up and become spring here in Seattle so I can use the damn thing!

O.M.G. This is AWESOME. Here I was thinking I was going to absolutely love the purse I'm working on, and lo, I find this (well-written)tute and it's more awesome! I'm a fiend for patchwork, and this would make a fabulous run around town bag! *adds to her list of things to make when she gets the sewing machine for upcoming birthday*

I dream up impossibles and make them obstacles. Certainly good at some things. Really bad at most things.

Here's my attempt so far!



I think I'm going to add a flap to it at the top to give it some sort of lid-type thing. not sure though. May just leave it as-is. I love it dearly though!

IS there another way to do straps?  I was thinking of making one to cart my tiny laptop around in, but I'd be afraid the knot at the strap wpuld break....
