This is the first bag I've made. I followed the instructions in http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2038.0 for the basic bag concept, and kind of just winged the rest. It turned out a little flimsier than I would have liked, so I plan to use interfacing next time. It has a tie closure through two grommets in the front panel.

It was for a friend's birthday. I bet you can't guess what her name is.  Tongue

Inside Panel


This is a flower brooch that I made out of lace that can be worn either on the bag, or as a brooch as seen fit. The detail is really crummy, but it is about the size it is in the picture.

Thank you!

For anything in particular, or the whole thing?

The bag itself is kind of a simplified version of this one http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2684.0 just with different dimensions.  Smiley

Hmmm...I'm honestly not sure. I just kind of ... cut.

One and a half should do it, methinks, but don't quote me on it. I used quite a few different fabrics on this, but it could be simplified down to lining and outer fabric. Plus, I would suggest using interfacing or something like that if you don't want it to be floppy.
