TrendyWendy, love that bag!  GirlyGirlBags, love your backpack, too.
Fille de Joy, I got the plastic tubing at Home Depot.  It's not aqarium tubing--I think it's tubing for swamp coolers.  We have a lot of those in Phoenix.  It only cost about 3 or 4 dollars for a 15-foot roll.

how did you affix the tubing ends together?  I'm just thinking if there's much weight in the purse (like mine!) then what would be a nice strong way to connect the ends?

I used a piece of heavy-duty craft yarn.  I threaded it through the tubing and tied it as tight as I could.  I just carry purse-type stuff in it, but it's holding up fine.

Girly Girl your backpak is awesome any 6 year old would love it.  That pattern would be great in the retro colors too for us older girls.

February is moving quickly!  Does anyone have any experience with Butterick pattern 4624?  My niece wants something small and vera bradley-esque and I'm thinking I should start with a commercial pattern since she's expecting a polished product. 

If anyone has tried to make such a bag using prequilted cotton, pattern or not, I'd love to hear your experiences.  You can pm me if you don't want to clutter the thread.

I'm not familiar with the pattern but I have worked with prequilted fabric, no problems on my end.  Of course I only used it to make a laptop pocket for a messenger bag.

This is my February bag.  I made a phone cosy for a swap.  A phone cosy is a bag right?
Now that my swap package has been received, I can post a photo.
