You totally saved me with your plaid bag! I've been playing around with the same shape for awhile and an example is here : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56232.0
its the skull bag!

But, you helped me find a way to change the outcome a bit, and a way to use my friggin ric-rac and felt scraps!

You Rock!

Catniplemon:
Yes, there are three small pockets in the front of the back (where the strap closes), like for my lip gloss and cell phone and pens.  In the back (where the strap attaches) there is one larger pocket, which holds my address book and stuff like that. Smiley  Thank you so much for the compliments, I'm excited to see what you'll make! ^_^

mingaling88:
Yep, that's the one, with Rachel Bilson on the front. Cheesy
Thanks, I didn't think it looked a lot like the original purse, but I like how it came out anyway. Smiley

seaofstars:
I posted on your other thread too but I just want to say again I love these bags!  The colourful flowered one is so cool!!  ^_^

seaofstars, i meant to ask you if you found a better way of attaching the corner pieces on this bag?  I was thinking about making another one of these but I hate doing that part, lol.
Let me know if you came up with anything better.

thingwraith..

i actually did and was going to post it but forgot! anyway...

i just cut the little footbally shapes and sewed down the top edge of the shape onto the purse fronts and backs BEFORE darting the corners.

then, I folded in the purse corners, pulling away the felt and then added my darts. Then, you can flip it over, and its super easy to pleat the felt and baste it down.

Does that make sense? if not, I can try to get some pics to help understand it better. I guess you just have to do or have it in your hands.

EDIT: heres a quick illustration...

Yes, it totally makes sense, because that was one way I thought about doing this, but I never ended up trying it.  How funny, eh? hehe
I think I'll try that next time I make one of these.  Wink

Thingwraith, I'm close to being done with this bag but I have a question about your tutorial. 

You mentioned at the end of the tutorial that you attached the snap to the flap of the bag.  What kind of snap did you use?  I was wondering if one half of the snap should be attached at the beginning before you sew the flap closed and the other half of the snap sewn in before you sew the lining of the bag to the exterior fabric.  I hate sewing snaps and buttons and things like that but I want some sort of closure on this particular bag.  Just want to make sure I do it right.

Thanks!

Archer:
I used a decorative snap, like the kind you see on "cowboy" shirts.  You could attach the stud part of the snap (the part that will go on the front of the purse) before you sew everything together, but I didn't.  I didn't want to have it in the way while I sewed and stuff. Smiley
If you're using another kind of snap you might want to attach it first though.  Otherwise the ugly parts will show, hehe.  Hope that helps!  I can't wait to see your finished bag. Cheesy
