very nice I like the longer handles. I made this purse as well.

Yours is lovely.   Grin It's been a while since I've used a pattern.  I stopped buying them years ago because I seemed to buy variations on stuff I'd already made.  After sewing this, I started looking at commercial patterns for purses again.  OMG, I can't believe how expensive they've become.

I feel so grateful to have found this pattern because the moment I saw it, I just knew it suited me perfectly.

Wow, that's pretty. Smiley How big is this bag?

It's on the large size for a purse.  The dimensions of mine are 15"x12"x4", and the drop on the handle was 52".  Despite the size, it's very light; the lightest bag I own.

I first saw this FREE pattern months ago http://machenmachen.wordpress.com/patterns/ and fell in love.  I was scouting a fabric store with bargains I could not pass up and I felt like a new bag, so I bought fabric and voila!  [Note: I made the handles  longer than the original pattern because I prefer cross-body.]


The piece that runs upward diagonally across (L-R) is a key leash.


My sister wanted one too. Hers is suede inside and out.  It was much harder to sew (I have the bloody fingers to prove it) but it turned out okay in the end.  [I used the same lining].
