ok. that's a long title. but it's all those things! Recently I've started to see all this sparkle/glitter vinyl stuff around and I want some! SO when I finally saw some for sale at a store near me (the Mill End Store for those of you in the Portland or Beaver-tron area) I grabbed it!
This is the third of this type of bag I've made. there are other pix over here:

But this latest bag is by far my favorite. I've already moved everything into it and wore it out to starbucks today! weeeee!

Hope you likee. One thing to remember. In the "tutorial" I found for this type of bag (not with this type of lining though-she did it differently) they never mentioned what type of zipper to use. You have to have a separating zipper if you want to make this type of bag in ONE PIECE! K. schpeal over. enjoi

***ps*** notice that matching wallet/card holder case thingie. Matchy matchy, I know. but pruhty no?

This is so pretty.
You did an excellent job coordinating. Smiley

One question, how/where do you get the cute little feet for the purse and how do you put them on? I'm new to sewing....

thank you thank you so much!  Grin
I feel so validated by you people! woohoo!

the purse feet I also got at the Mill End store. they have almost everything there! But you should be able to find them at a good fabric store or definitely online. They're like $1.99/per set.  I just cut a slit type x-shape thingie in the fabric with an x-acto knife and slipped in the ends. They're like those manilla envelope thingies. you know those brass colored closures on those envelopes? how you fold down the metal pieces to make a line?  It's like that on the bottom of the feet. they're probably other kinds out there. but that's the kind I got anyway.

I love the aesthetic of your bag, and you put so much attention into the details - it's truly great! I'm definitely adding the Mill End store to my list of places to go for my next visit to the relatives in Portland!
