love  this.  Your fabric choices are stellar.  I especially like the lining...matching is for suckas.

Thanks everyone for your nice compliments!
I got those metallics at all different times. With fancy fabrics I will save even small pieces forever, with plain fabrics I only save fairly large pieces. So I have this box full of little bits of velvet, lace, lame, satin, etc. I make small things with them like purses or x-mas stockings, or doll clothes when my neice was younger.

The purple and gold woven stripe I made a dress out of maybe 10 years ago, (which no longer fits me and I got rid of) but I  saved the scraps because it was so pretty.
The ivory I bought maybe 1 year ago in a remnant bin and have never done anything with it until now. I still have quite a bit of that left.
The really glitzy green I have had for about 2 years, just bought a yard because it was so pretty but didn't have any project in mind.I think it was with xmas fabrics. I do that all the time- just buy stuff without knowing what I will make. ESPECIALLY when they are glittery- I am like a raccoon or something, I can't resist shiny things. It's just been sitting in my stash until the past month  I have been using it in small pieces for leaf appliques and stuff on other purses.
The darker green with gold streaks was leftover from making curtains at an apartment I lived in 3 years ago, LOL.
The purple and gold brocade, god I've had that at least 6 years, I bought a quarter yard of a couple different colors just because they were pretty and shiny. I think I used this one to make a border at the hem of a black skirt. Which also no longer fits me.

I think I like the backside best.  With all the smaller pieces & the random stitching....very cool.

this is super cute, i love it
where on earth did you get the rings from? i cant seem to find any anywhere and ive been wanting to make bags with rings and also bathingsuits.i've tried constructing them out of many different things but nothing ever works out right.

I got these brass rings at Michaels, they are in an odd place, with the magnets and general craft supplies. Not in sewing, not in pursemaking, not in floral.(the places I would expect to find them) They might be too big for swimsuits though, they are the smallest ones they had and they are 2 1/2 inches diameter

and actually here is an unrelated tip about michaels funky departments: magnetic purse clasps at michaels are in 3 different places, 3 different brands. the ones in sewing are most expensive, the ones in the pursemaking section are about a dollar less, and the ones with the general magnets section come two clasps to a package for less than the package in the pursemaking dept, which is only one clasp to a pack!
