What a great fabric...and I love the lining.  I've been looking at patterns for that style of bag and I think I will try it!

i always thought those bamboo handles were tacky, but it works well with your purse
I totally know what you are talking about!  I was hoping to find black wooden handles to go with the black outlines of the flowers (I wanted it to look more asian inspired than tropical, and that print can go both ways).  I looked in every store online and the only 6 1/2 handles I could find (which is what the pattern called for) were bamboo.  I was so disappointed, and I worried that bamboo would look tacky, but this being my first pattern, I didn't want to deviate from the size requirements, so I bought them.  I was so pleasantly surprised when I put it together and it actually worked.  I'm kind of glad that I didn't know how to adjust the pattern to fit a slightly smaller wooden handle!
PwrToolChick - that's really encouraging to hear that you were able to start making your own patterns...I can only dream!

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments, all!

I have loved this forum for a long time and have recently become addicted to the Purses/bags/wallets section.  Everyone is so talented - you have really inspired me.  I just finished my first bag, and I LOVE it...Here it is:

Front: (I used a home decor fabric on sale at Joann's for $9/yard)

Inside: (It's a heavy cotton - I snagged a bunch of it at Wal-Mart years ago for $2/yard.  I finally found a use!)

Back: (with the pattern I used, Simplicity 4670)

I'm not an experience sewer (seamstress?), so I took it slow and steady, but it was pretty easy all in all.  What do you think?

You should try some of the vintage apron patterns from McCalls...I had not sewn anything since high school, and started with those.  They are very easy and so cute.

Reciproque is a series of stores on one or two blocks that has an incredible selection of designer resale.  It is very pricey but worth a visit.
