lyra that turned out really well!
It looks very professional.  Smiley
How long did it take to do?
and how did  you finish your seams?
Thank you!
The pictures very kindly hide many of my mistakes...
It took me maybe two hours, possibly more. The most annoying part was cutting everything out.

And how I finished my seams...hmm, well, considering I'm not entirely sure what that would entail, I think my response has to be...I didn't. But if it's the kind of stitches, it was the zigzag one, because someone said somewhere that it should keep it from fraying.

(Pardon the rambling, first post...)
So I'd been wanting to make this for a while, and finally I got to it, and...let me know what you think. It's my first attempt at actually sewing something (I did sew my mother a knitting-needle-case last year, though), and I definitely screwed up a lot. Also? I'm terrible at following directions. I mean, I follow them until I figure out where they're heading, and then, pfft.

The fabric was stuff we had lying around: maroon with dots (I think the dots are actually beige-ish, but I pretended they were pink), and nice pink satiny stuff for the lining. The interfacing I got (who knew there were so many kinds? My goodness...) was double sided, so I just fused the lining on. Waaaay easier than doing that whole thing twice.

I also forgot to put the tab on the far side (we happened to have ribbon that was a close enough color, so I did that instead of the fabric tabs...), but, meh. Good enough for a first go.

I cannot actually put the pictures here, but here are links:

The bag!

Thanks for the lovely tutorial, it really was a help, and it actually got me to get off my ass and try this out.
