Here is the 2nd time I did this bag, my first one was horrible. Smiley I used this tut, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70546.0

Here is the 2nd attempt.


(That is the green salad type bowl I used for the shape)


(I used a CD to get a general idea of how big I wanted the handle cut out area to be)

Here is my first version http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70546.msg727497#msg727497

The bag is really easy to make and mine keep on getting better the more I make.

thank you all for the sweet comments...

@bonbonz101: Yeah the bowl was the way the tut said to do, the first time I used a plate cause I was too lazy to go and get a bowl. It turned out bad for me, my mom is like its cute. But as a sewer it was bad, hahaha!! But the bigger the bowl is the more mistakes I could make and hide, hehehe!!

@minki*dynamite: Thank you sooo much for the tut to begin with, I am such a huge fan of it, The hole is the hardest part, cause your right, you get clip happy and you end up clipping the hole too big,  Cheesy

@roxybadoxy: The diameter of the purse itself is a little less then 12 inches, the bowl was about 13 inches or so; I just used some chalk to make sure I stayed on the lines of the bowl though, and cut the fabric a little bigger then the size of the bowl, so that the size of my bag would be close to the size of the bowl, it worked out good this way.
