Your dress turned out great! I like the colour combo and the curved neckline. I was at the mall yesterday looking for a dress to wear to a wedding and yours is much nicer than the ones that I saw Smiley

I like all of the pockets on the front of the bag! It looks like it would be really easy to find stuff in it Smiley

letmysoulshine: The final dimensions were around 12 inches high x 13 inches wide. The base was 4 inches wide. It ended up being one of the larger messenger bags that I've made Smiley

Cardine1492: I made alot of my labels using a regular inkjet printer and printable fabric (that's not the product name but I can't think what it is....it's sold in boxes of 3 or 4 near the t-shirt transfers) from Joanns. Here is a tutorials that I used to make them:

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / With love from Korea...a black damask purse on: July 10, 2008 01:27:02 PM
This is a purse that I made for my mom for Christmas. A little late posting pics hehe. I was in Korea at the time and found this really cool metal purse frame that I wanted to use. I'm not sure what the real name for it is, but it's tubular in shape and snaps open and shut. Does anyone know?

Anyhow, I saw a picture of a similar purse made using this frame and I decided that it would make a neat homemade present for my mom. The frame unscrews at the ends, so I just had to sew a straight tube to slip it into at the top of the purse. I handstitched on the handles (there were pre-drilled holes). I'm pretty sure that was my least favourite part of it all!!

I wanted the bottom of the bag to not be saggy so I inserted a cardboard piece. It was late at night and all I could find in my apt. was a Frosted Flakes box, so I ended up cutting 2 pieces of it to fit the bottom, and then wrapping them in packing tape so that they would be a bit more firm. I think that Tony the Tiger would have been happy to know that he was recycled  Wink

PS If you want to see what Tony the Tiger looks like when he is speaking Korean, I added a pic to my blog! http://blissbyheather.blogspot.com/2008/07/frosted-flakes-and-jolly-green.html

The bag:


Inside there is one zippered pocket. You can see on the ends where the purse frame screws together:

threegirlsandaboy: I used medium weight iron on interfacing. I usually buy it in the drapery section because it is 60" wide so it ends up being cheaper than if I bought the regular 45" wide type Smiley
