Who can go wrong with these color combinations?  Small shoulder bag (my design) with pocket on front and zippered pocket inside.  I made it for a woman at work, her daughter LOVES purses...and these are her favorite colors.  Only two things I don't like...I forgot the magnetic closure and the front pocket folds underneath it because of when I sewed the pocket on I didn't leave enough room for the fold to make the bottom.  I inserted some super thick interfacing between the outer fabric and the lining and attached metal feet (first time).  Overall it's a super cute bag but next time I will add the magnetic closure, ensure there's enough room for the outer pocket if I add it and also make the bag a little longer for more contents.  Let me know what you think.

I really like this design!  Polka dots are some of my favorite patterns Smiley  I really, really like your design of this bag.  It's very cute, and something that I would totally dig Smiley  Nice work!

Thanks everyone!  Assuming the two flaws I pointed out were fixed...how much would you sell something like that for?  I've got lots of denim to use and I'm thinking of making a bunch more of these.  Probably going to make them longer but keep the same look and everything.  I made the inside zipper pocket differently this time, using the other tutorial on Craftster.  I don't recall which one it was but I usually use the one where you sew the two pieces of fabric on either side of the zipper and you place that piece on the lining that you have cut in half.  This time I cut a slit in the middle and made little V's on either end.  Then folded them under so the zipper would poke through.  Since it's for someone at work, and there are a few flaws...I'm only charging her $20.  I bought everything as remnants, have a bunch left and it only cost me about $3 total to make.  I love it!!!

Update, the lady wanted to give me more so I told her $25 and even though she wanted to pay more (LOL) I told her no more.  The next ones (which I'm working on right now), will probably sell for more.  Cheesy
