Hi Caffinated Craftster!

Here you go...

  • 16" wide total at the top
                   4" on each side
                   6.25" in the middle
                   1.5" long drop (approx)
  • 11" inches high
  • 19.25" wide at the bottom

Here's a hint for drawing the top:
 - draw the 16" total, then the 4" in from each side, then center the 6.25" in the middle, about 1" below the 4" lines, then connect the 4" lines to the middle "6.25 line.  This way you end up with the right total inches and don't have to measure the 1.5" drop line which is only approximate anyway.

Handles are 14" long and 1.5" wide FINISHED (does NOT include seam allowances).

Above dimenstions (except handles) includes a .5" seam allowance, and a 3.5" (when finished) jordy bottom.  Um, except I don't cut squares for my jordy bottom, I do it a little differently, I have templates I use.  So I don't know how big your cutout square would need to be?

And I'll let you do your own pockets since I think pockets should be personalized to a persons stuff!  Wink

PLEASE post when you complete it!

Well, my  BF has gone hiking for the day in the rain with his friends (have fun with that!) so I decided to do a bit of sewing.

My first project for the day has been slightly less than successful.

It looks ok from afar...

But the handles are very wonky.

I tried to sew the handles in at the exact same angle as the front/back/lining pieces and it just didn't seem to work.

I'm off to do some ripping and see what happens...wish me luck!

By the way..this is an awesome bag.  The problem is with the seamstress, not the pattern!

EDIT: Crisis averted....it was a much simpler fix than I thought.  What happened was when I got close to the curves, my seam allowance grew slightly. 
A few clips and a bit of trimming and all is well again.....whew!  I shall now proceed to finish the bag Smiley

Thanks for the great pattern brubendall!

A very smart design, a very pretty fabric, and very neat craftsmanship.

I lovee that fabric. I'm bookmarking this, because I need a purse like that!  Smiley

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.
