Well, maybe not 101, just one. And it's not an actual dropcloth. But anyway...

I made my second purse yesterday, the first one I made all by myself and made my own pattern for! It was based off the the LA-Z Girl Bag from American Apparel. The outside was supposed to be canvas but I think I ended up with more of a linen type fabric. Anyway, on that I used Dye-na-Flow, fabric paint, and sometimes a mix of Dye-na-Flow and fabric paint to do the coloring. The inside is lined with a plaid and there are some pockets that are placed too high. The top is a drawstong, and the drawsting is made out of fabric covered 1" cream ribbon.




Scrunched up


Inside

And me modeling the bag (I changed the colors after this, added some pink and green to make it go with the inside better and look more lively)



I totally love it! I'm going to miss my Coach bag, but I made this one myself. So great!

Thats awesome...I love how you did the straps. It looks like it would match great with about any color.

I took pictures while I was doing it, but I don't know if they're still on my fathers camera or not. If not, I'll type up some sort of written instructions.


(And I actually went into American Apparel recently and I inspected their bag. Mine was way better because it was mine, but it did kind of look a lot like theirs, save the straps.)
